Palm Harbor, Florida is located on the Gulf of Mexico Coast side of Florida about halfway down. It sits just a 20-minute drive south of Clearwater and 20 miles west of Tampa. Downtown Palm Harbor hosts a number of small shops and restaurants as well as historic buildings. The city was founded in 1888 as Sutherland, Florida before changing its name to Palm Harbor in 1925. The city is known for its charming, historic downtown area as well as its surrounding beaches and the beautiful Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club, which makes it a quaint, but popular tourist destination.
If you’re looking for a calm, relaxing vacation away from the big crowds that nearby cities like St. Petersburg, Clearwater and Tampa usually draw, Palm Harbor is a great place to do so. The best spot to go for great beaches and nature is Honeymoon Island State Park. You take about a 15-minute drive down the causeway to this beautiful state park in the Gulf of Mexico. Here you’ll find beautiful wildlife with osprey nests and a large variety of birds and an all-natural slash pine forest. The park has nature trails and bird observation areas. You can also take a ferry shuttle to Caladesi Island, which is known as one of the best beaches in America. Another great natural adventure would be to visit John Chestnut Sr. Park where you can enjoy walking trails and boardwalks that take you among the trees where you can see beautiful birds.
