Boating and Natural Beauty in a Friendly Walkable Small City

Situated on the gulf coast of Florida, Dunedin is a paradise of beauty and recreation. The adorable downtown is surrounded by walkable neighborhoods, event venues, and parks. The downtown parks are renowned for their beauty and accessibility and have nesting spots for the countless bird species who make their homes throughout the city. A walking trail leads right through downtown and lots of greenways and waterfront access make getting outside to enjoy a bit of the weather and view an easy thing to do.

Dunedin itself has almost everything you could wish for, but you’ll still find yourself itching to visit the wonderful cities of Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg on a regular basis.  Moving to Dunedin is a great choice if you like friendly people, year round great weather, and a vibrant, socially active community feeling. Kind of off the map for tourists too, although you’ll get your share do to Honeymoon Island State Park, the gorgeous white-sand beach and recreation area just across St. Joseph Sound.

Housing is a bit pricier than some of our other places but well within reason, without that coastal price bloat you see so often. Hurricanes off the Gulf of Mexico can be serious business so look at flooding maps and consider the rising coast of insurance if you are keen on being super close to the waterfront.
