DUNEDIN, FLORIDA
Small Town Charm & Great Beaches


Dunedin, Florida is a city of about 36,000 on the Gulf coast between Clearwater and Tarpon Springs. It is the fifth largest city in Pinellas County and is one of the oldest cities on the Florida Gulf coast.

Most of Dunedin is located west of US-19 on Alternate 19 which runs along the shoreline and is known locally as Edgewater Drive.

It was settled in the late 1860s and was originally named Jonesboro after the owner of the general store. The name was changed in 1878 to Dunedin by two Scotsmen who came to the area.

A unique attraction in Dunedin is its waterfront. It is one of the few cities in Florida where the waterfront is not completely hidden from view by high rise buildings.

June is a good month for Florida weather. It is starting to get warm but not too hot until later in the month. Florida is officially open for business even during this pandemic, but many restaurants and stores still require you to wear a mask when you go inside. Once you're inside, you can usually take off the mask. Servers and other restaurant staff wear masks and do a good job cleaning up between customers. Everybody is doing their best.
