About Dunedin, Florida

Scottish settlers in Florida took the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh, Dun Eideann, and named their town after it.

Centuries later, this small town in Pinellas County is still proud of its heritage, and has become a popular tourist spot thanks to its pristine beaches.

From Dunedin Causeway, to Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island State Park—one of the best beaches in the world—you'll be spoiled for choice when deciding where to lay down your towel. Best to stay for a few days to make sure you try them all!

This open waterfront community has fantastic views of the Gulf of Mexico—enjoy them while sitting on the balcony of your vacation rental.

If you head into town, you'll notice that the business district has no commercial signs, commercial franchises or retail stores. Dunedin is all about the independent and family-run businesses, which gives the town a charming, friendly atmosphere.

What to do

If you're up for an adventure, try the Pinellas Trail. It's a 39-mile-long bicycle and pedestrian trail that cuts right through Dunedin and across Pinellas county. Most of the trail follows the old route of the Orange Belt Railway, so it's pretty smooth riding.

Go in the spring and you might spot the Toronto Blue Jays practicing before the start of the season. The city is also home to soccer, baseball, hockey and softball—there's always a match on, so see if you can catch one!

Fancy a beer? Dunedin Brewery is Florida's oldest microbrewery and has some great specials that you should try.

Dunedin is also known for its Fine Art Center—enthusiasts across the US come to view the exhibits and be taught by the instructors. Check it out during your stay.

Top travel tips

Scottish clans flock to the city for the Dunedin Highland games. They come from all over the US. Some even pop across the Atlantic. It's a great spectacle, which you should take part in if it's on during your stay.

There are lots of other events throughout the year, including Mardi Gras and other local festivals. Ask the visitors’ center for information, or check an events list.

If you fancy a bit of homegrown produce, or a truly local souvenir head to the Downtown market. There are lots of places for a night out or to have a tasty meal.

Enjoy the clash of Scottish and American culture when you visit Dunedin. It's a great spot for an exciting vacation, just pick your property on FlipKey and get going!
