Staycation in Dunedin

Dunedin is one of the most adorable spots in Florida. It has it all in my opinion, stunning natural beaches, a bike trail, marinas, fantastic food, breweries, and adventure. 

Here’s a quick guide to having the best Florida staycation:

Where to stay: I booked a few nights at the Fenway because I’m a sucker for rooftop bars and historic architecture. I’d recommend it for the location and amenities, although it is a bit pricey. 

What to do: Where you stay isn’t too critical as there’s so much to do you won’t want to spend too much time in your hotel anyway. 

  • Bike along the Pinellas Trail to Tarpon Springs
  • Tarpon Springs has boat rentals, great Greek food, and fun shops along the sponge docks. 
  • While on your ride, stop at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary to visit the chimps.
  • Honeymoon Island – this natural slice of white sand has walking trails and stretches of uncrowded beaches. 
  • Caladesi Island – take the ferry, kayak, or drive to his remote stretch of rural beach. 
  • Tour the local breweries – bike or walk around town and visit Caledonia Brewing, Dunedin House of Beer, HOB Brew Co., Woodwright Brew Co, Dunedin Brewery, Soggy Bottom, 7venth Sun, and more. 

Where to Eat: 

  • Olde Bay Cafe – Unfussy, chilled, with amazing views. The fish dip is amazing.
  • Crown and Bull – busy for brunch but a great spot for Bloody Mary’s.
  • Casa Tina – Incredible, authentic Mexican food
  • The Honu
  • Sonder Social Club
  • Lucky Lobster Co
  • Hog Island Fish Camp Seafood
  • Hi-Fi Rooftop – if you don’t stay at Fenway, at least stop by for the sunset views at Hi-Fi.
