Get your Green on in Dunedin, Florida. This small welcoming waterfront community will delight even the most seasoned travelers. Dunedin has its own vibe — a bit beachy with an artsy twist. The main street is called (no surprise) Main Street, and that's where the action is. Adorable and filled with creativity, Main Street is almost too cute to be real — but it is. The street is lined with delectable restaurants, craft breweries, and unique retail shops offering one-of-a-kind artists' works. You will find the waterfront at the end of Main Street and the perfect place to watch sunsets. For an extra beachy bonus, Dunedin is home to Honeymoon Island and the gateway to Caladesi Island. For the sports fan, TD Ballpark is home to Spring training for the Blue Jays.
