Breweries
Dunedin is the perfect spot for craft beer lovers. It is home to Florida's oldest microbrewery, Dunedin Brewery. Started in 1996, this brewery helped to turn Dunedin into a beer-centric community. There are now 8 local breweries within walking distance of each other. Here are a few other spots to try (all with outdoor seating):

Florida's Tiniest Taqueria
Taco Baby used to be an ATM and is now Florida's tiniest taqueria. It may only be 51 square-feet, but it serves up big and bold taco flavors! Make sure to stop by on Tuesdays to get a dollar off your taco.

Pinellas Trail
Dunedin is considered the heart of the Pinellas Trail. Go for a stroll or bike ride along this 40-mile trail.

The trail turned 30 this year, and it used to be the railroad that carried the oranges to Dunedin.

Hidden Oranges
Late one night, Steven Spathelf and Marsha Goins painted a couple of oranges on buildings. Once the media learned about it, people started asking them to paint oranges on their businesses and houses. Now there are dozens of oranges of various shapes and sizes around downtown. Make a game out of it and see how many hidden oranges you can spot!

Shop Local
Dunedin has a wide variety of local retailers and restaurants. "We're not a corporate downtown," Gregory Brady, board member for the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce. "We are all locally owned mom-and-pop businesses." You're bound to find something unique when you shop downtown!
