Dunedin, Florida, is located on the Gulf Coast and one of the oldest towns on the west coast. From the very first visit to Dunedin, I knew It was special.
If you asked a dozen people what they love most about Dunedin, you could easily get a dozen different answers. Craft beer lovers might say that it's the more than half a dozen craft breweries, like Cueni Brewing, beach lovers and sun worshipers might suggest its the renowned beaches, Caladesi and Honeymoon Islands. Fun fact - Honeymoon Island has been deemed the number one state park in Florida.
As I've gotten to know and love Dunedin, I believe It's the people that make Dunedin special. The small business owners and residents are fun, quirky and full of love and life for a town they genuinely enjoy being a part of. They are the very definition of what community is.
Dunedin is taken from Scottish Gaelic Dùn Èideann, the Scottish Gaelic for Edinburgh.
