Dunedin, Florida

I was just wondering if any of you have been to Dunedin(just outside of Clearwater)? If so, what are your opinions of the city? My family and I are going on vacation there in about a month to see if we want to move there but we want to get a general idea of how it is before we check it out.

Basically a suburb of St. Petersburg. But it's a bit too close to Clearwater for my comfort. :|

 

It also doesn't have its own beach. You have to go across to Honeymoon Island State Recreation Area.

Went there for the first time this Spring. I was impressed. It is very small and is basically a suburb of Clearwater/St. Petersburg. The downtown area is your typical "Old Florida Downtown." The area around the Pinellas Trail is nice, and a bit "artsy," while the residential area around Knology Park is typical of small to mid-small sized Florida towns.

 

Nothing to celebrate, but nothing to complain about.

I've been hearing a good chunk of the city is walkable? That is a big reason why we are thinking about moving there. I don't drive and my brother is too young to so my mom wants to move to a city where we can walk to stores, restaurants etc since we live out in the middle of nowhere right now.

Been there a few times on Spring Training runs to see the Jays...

 

Like So Fla said, it's your typical old Florida town. Pretty quiet. There are some nice residential areas (old style houses on the water), and then there are some poorer residential areas which are close to Knology Park( not TOO bad, but not too nice). There's also a fairly nice shopping district with boutique-style stores and a few restaurants.

 

Not really sure why anyone would "vacation" there if they were not there to catch a ballgame, but regardless, hope you have a nice trip.

Thanks guys, I'm looking forward to checking it out.

 

Really any city in Florida is better than New Mexico. It is amazing how much you take things like rain and grass for granted. It rains like once every 2 months out here and when it does it lasts for about 5 minutes. I am not going to miss getting hit in the face with sand by 20-30 mph winds. It will be nice not having to worry about some idiot wanting to fight you every time you walk down the street as well.
