The City of Dunedin is Ranked as a Top Place to Retire
DUNEDIN – Once again, the City of Dunedin ranks in the top of the pack. This time, MONEY Magazine chose the area as part of their “Best Places to Retire.” Over the course of the past several months the magazine has sent a writer, photographer and video journalist to capture the essence of the city.
“Dunedin was selected as a “MONEY Best Places to Retire” because of its unique combination of value and beauty. It is less crowded and less expensive than other contenders on the Atlantic side of Florida while offering cobblestone paths, quaint historic buildings and a pretty marina. This city with a Celtic heritage makes you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time,” said MONEY managing editor, Eric Schurenberg.
MONEY Magazine also recognized Dunedin in 2004 as part of their “Best Places to Live on the Coast” series. Dunedin was chosen as a top spot to live on the Gulf of Mexico and the city was touted as Tampa Bay’s best-kept secret.
“Dunedin is a very special place and our little secret is out.” Courtney King, Communications Supervisor for the City of Dunedin said. “Dunedin is not only a great place to retire but a place to be part of a real community. Dunedin is a city with the feel and charm of a small town. Living here we enjoy a vibrant arts scene, the best beaches, a 34-mile bike trail with great ocean views and a golf course that once housed the PGA. Everything about Dunedin is attractive and vibrant; we are a very dynamic slice of paradise where you can live, work and play or just simply retire and enjoy the good life.”
In May 2008, Dr. Beach (Stephen P. Leatherman) chose Dunedin’s Caladesi Island State Park as the Number One beach in the country in his “America’s Best Beaches” series. Caladesi beat out beaches in Hawaii, along the Eastern Seaboard and California for this year's honor. Leatherman compiles his list as part of the National Healthy Beaches Campaign, and this year plans a television special featuring the nation's best beaches.
