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. If you’re travelling to Palm Harbor, a great place to stay and play some great golf is at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club, which has four beautiful championship golf courses for golfers of all skill levels. There are also numerous boat tours you can take out into the Gulf of Mexico with Private Island Charters or Custom Boat Charters and you can also go on a deep-sea fishing adventure with Captain John O’Hanlon Fishing Expeditions or with Hotfish Charters.
Palm Harbor has a great location for a number of day trips to larger Florida cities in the area. You can take a 30-minute drive to Tampa where you can explore the city and hit the Busch Gardens Tampa theme park and zoo, which is a lot of fun for the whole family. Tampa is also home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers NFL football team where you can catch a game in season at Raymond James Stadium.
