GREAT RESORT ENVIRONMENT WITHOUT THE CROWDS! Dunedin is often described as quaint, and it is. Cute shops, very friendly people, great weather (hot, humid days are not constant, so they don't bother me.) Have been here 14 months. Every morning I look
out the window and see another day with bright blue, sunny skies, and am grateful to be here. I often watch tall cranes in the front yard while eating breakfast. Lots of pelicans at the marina across the street. Ospreys nest on a high pole across the street, and we watch them return to the nest with fish. LOTS of activities and events for the public. Very education, entertainment and culture conscious environment in this entire Tampa Bay area. Mease Dunedin Hospital is an excellent hospital. I know, because I worked in health care most of my career. Health care workers always in high demand because Florida has many senior citizens. Lots of lovely parks with cultural centers. Seems like the local governments believe strongly in providing services for the residents. Many arts and crafts shows in entire area. It is possible to go to some kind of festival just about every weekend. Tarpon Springs, founded by the Greeks as a sponge diving seaport, is only about 25 miles from Dunedin. Clearwater and St. Petersburg are adjacent to the south. Arts are not just entertainment or hobbies here. The people take them very seriously. Most tourists stay at better known places, like nearby Treasure Island or Busch Gardens, but they are becoming more familiar with Dunedin and it is becoming more crowded. Real estate prices going up, but that is true of the whole Tampa suburban area. Rents are reasonable, but it will be hard for you to find a place in the winter. Snowbirds come here then and stay until May/June. So rents zoom up at that time if places had not already been leased. Sarasota, one of Florida's most beautiful towns, is a short trip away. Orlando is just over an hour away. I'm not sure, but I think higher education schools are pretty good. Good luck to you!

Karen has certainly found her place in the sun since 2007.

You will find that Dunedin, and Palm Harbor and Safety Harbor and Clearwater are all nice towns IF the person moving in is a nice person. Treat folks with kindness and you will receive the same.
Expect others to make you happy and you will be disappointed.

Dunedin will be EXACTLY what you make it to be. If you bring your happiness with you then indeed Dunedin can become your little slice of paradise also.

Best of success,

We recommend taking a "day trip" and driving across the state with the purpose of getting a feel for yourself about the area. We feel you will be pleasently suprised.

The crime issue would be best referred to the local police department or county sheriff's department. They have access to the most current and accurate information and are generally very willing to be helpful.

Good luck
