About Dunedin, Florida
Dunedin is a city located in Pinellas County, Florida. The name is derived from the Scottish Gaelic name (Edinburgh) for the capital of Scotland. In 2010, Dunedin was home to 35,321 people. The city encompasses several beaches, including Caladesi Island State Park. Caladesi Island State Park has been consistently rated as one of the best beaches in the world. Dunedin is one of the few beaches in the area where buildings do not block the view of the Gulf of Mexico and Intracoastal Waterway.
Since 1977, Dunedin has been used by the Toronto Blue Jays for spring training. As such, it is one of the smallest communities used by a Major League team for spring training. The area was originally settled by Scottish families in the 1800s. The town became known as Dunedin when two men decided to name it after their hometown, Edinburgh. The city continues to acknowledge its Scottish roots by hosting the annual Dunedin Highland Games.
