Dunedin Neighborhood Guide
- Dunedin’s name comes from Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.
- Dunedin is home to several beaches, including Dunedin Causeway, Honeymoon Island, and Caladesi Island State Park, which is 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 (also known as Alternate US 19) south of downtown offers views of St. Joseph Sound, Clearwater Beach, and Caladesi Island.
- 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 bicycle and pedestrian trail that traverses all of Pinellas County, bisects downtown Dunedin.
- The city-owned Dunedin Marina has 194 boat slips and is one of the finest municipal marinas on the West Coast of Florida. The marina is located on the intercoastal waterway between Dunedin Causeway and Clearwater Causeways. It is home to the Dunedin Boat Club, one of Florida’s oldest Sailing Clubs.
