Great choice deciding on Pinellas County for your family. I personally lived in Dunedin for 11 years and am now in Palm Harbor. The great news in all the towns you mentioned is that they are all very close together which makes it easy to do all the fun things in any town that are going on! With 3 kids under 9 I would think one of your biggest concerns would be the schools. The Pinellas County Department of Education website is a great place to start to check out the local schools. They have done away with the Choice Program and have reinstituted the close to home school policy in placing students.
Dunedin is on the Gulf side of the county. The Pinellas Trail runs along the west side of the county from Tarpon Springs to the southern end of the county and runs right through downtown. This is for biking, blading, skating, walking etc. Dunedin has a great downtown with restaurants and shops. It also has a brand new community center, public pool, and the Dunedin Fine Arts Center. Honeymoon Island is a state park off the Dunedin Causeway with beautiful beaches and nature trails.
Palm Harbor is just north of Dunedin and has a little downtown area as well with shops and restaurants. The trail also runs right by here. It is a great family community as well.
Safety Harbor is also a similarly great town on the bay side of the county. (like I said all are in close proximity). This town is closer to the Tampa Area so of course you want to consider your commute to work in the equation.
I could go on and on of course but I will not. Their are fabulous choices in each town and it will really depend on your preferences of course. I recommend another trip here of course to get the feel for the area.
Best of luck to you and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Have a great day!

Safety Harbor is a nice safe place to raise a family. It has a village like atmosphere and great public schools. It is also centrally located to everything in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties.
I have a really nice 4/2/2 with a pool on a cul-de-sac for sale by owner with kids of similar ages if your interested. We are moving to NY when school starts.
It seems as though you are looking for a quaint downtown area. Dunedin has a quaint downtown offering a variety of restaurants and convenient access to the Pinellas Trail. Tarpon Springs which is north of Dunedin has a small town charm as well and offers convenient access to the Pinellas Trail.
Palm Harbor is nice too so so far it seems as though you are looking in the right places. I would add Tarpon Springs into your search too since its downtown in similar to Dunedin in that it has a quaint small town charm.
well it looks like you got several anwsers below if you would like me to run numbers for you on a specific house please feel free to give me a call. Happy Searching!'

Moving to a new community is both exciting and stressful. I try my very best to make it a truly exciting adventure for everyone in the family. The communities you have identified all have 'personality' based on a core downtown area, active arts community, events for the young and old, and attractions to keep your days filled. With three active young ones, access to parks and attractions are essenctial. That identifies Pinellas County to a T.
My 25 cent tour allows visitors to visit area attractions, schools, parks, best kept secrets and experience the
magic of getting up close and personal with natural Florida. Many area attractions and events can be seen at:
Palm Harbor University High School is one of two International Baccalaureate highschools in Pinellas County.
When you are ready, call for your 25 cent tour. It's a great orientation to the best in Florida lifestyle and even a peek at a few homes, give me a call.

Have you looked in Sarasota county? If a safe environment for your family is a great factor in your search you should look at the census information for the towns in question. Sarasota County schools are A-rated () and most of Sarasota itself has a very suburban feel. There is also a great downtown area which is great for nightlife, beaches, shopping, and business. Not to mention Siesta Key beach is considered one of the best beaches in the country, due to the white sand which is as fine as baby powder. Look into the area if you haven't already. Contact me if I can assist you in any way. Good luck with your move!

I think you've been given some good advice regarding where to consider buying. Any one of the towns mentioned would be a safe bet. I've lived in Safety Harbor for almost 20 years so I'm a bit prejudiced. As a tie breaker, the location is the best of the bunch. From SH you can easily get to most parts of Pinellas County as well as both airports, International Mall & the Westshore areas of Tampa & even parts of North Hillsborough in 30-40 minutes max. Safety Harbor & Dunedin are both more like small town midwest USA than they are many of the communities around here. SH has several events geared towards families & family oriented events.
Welcome to the area, regardless of which town you choose.
If I can be of any further help in your search just call or email.
