Dunedin is an event-filled town located just north of Clearwater and south of Palm Harbor along a lovely strip of Gulf coastline. It’s home to several beaches, including Dunedin Causeway Beach, Honeymoon Island, and Caladesi Island State Park, which are consistently rated among the best beaches in the world. Dunedin is one of the few open waterfront communities from Sarasota to Cedar Key where buildings do not completely obscure the view of the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico beyond; a 1-mile (1.6 km) stretch of Edgewater Drive (a.k.a. Alternate US 19) south of downtown offers views of St. Joseph Sound, Clearwater Beach, and Caladesi Island. Downtown Clearwater and Clearwater Beach are a 6-mile (10 km) drive south on Edgewater.
The downtown business district is notable for its absence of large commercial signage, corporate franchise restaurants or chain retail stores. The Pinellas Trail, a 39-mile-long (63 km) bicycle and pedestrian trail that traverses all of Pinellas County, bisects downtown Dunedin. Click here for the downtown trail map.
Sister city to Stirling, Scotland, Dunedin has embraced and maintained its Scottish roots. Once a year, Scottish clans descend upon the city for the Dunedin Highland Games. Both Dunedin High School and Dunedin Highland Middle School have competition-level pipe and drum bands. The high school’s marching band is known as the Scottish Highlander Band, and both teen and adult members make up the City of Dunedin Pipe and Drum Corps.
Dunedin hosts many other annual events and festivals. The most popular among these are Dunedin’s Mardi Gras and Old Fashioned Christmas celebrations, during which thousands of visitors descend on the small town to have fun and be merry!
