Sun, sand and water – those are the perfect ingredients for a spectacular home town. This is Palm Harbor, located just about midway down the Gulf Coast of Florida in Pinellas County.
The unincorporated town has become one of Florida’s fastest growing communities – and with good reason. Palm Harbor’s proximity to Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg give residents easy access to fine dining and big city amenities while preserving the relaxed atmosphere of a small town.
Located on Florida’s beach just about midway up the Gulf Coast, Palm Harbor is a bustling, prosperous community with a deceptively quaint and charming feel. The area enjoys a special status as an unincorporated town, protecting Palm Harbor real estate from annexation by nearby communities. The many neighborhoods range picturesque historic areas with beautiful traditional homes to contemporary single family and condominium communities with their own beach and lake access and boat slips.
Palm Harbor offers just about anything you could want in a new home location. The area public schools are part of the Pinellas County school system which is consistently rated above average for the state. The economy is strong and unemployment is below the national average. The area is growing fast, but local constraints are in place to prevent overdevelopment and the resulting loss of the charming small town atmosphere that makes Palm Harbor such a wonderful place to live.
Palm Harbor is also an excellent choice for a second home. The nearby attractions include long stretches of sandy beaches, nature conservatories and the Pinellas County Hiking Trail. The community offers just about any outdoor sport you can imagine, including golf, boating, parasailing, swimming, hiking, camping.
