    Welcome to Palm Harbor, an unincorporated community in the heart of Florida's Sun Coast. Although the town has a humble beginning in citrus farming, in the last twenty years Palm Harbor has turned into one of the most affluent communities in the Tampa Bay area. Today, there are over 100 neighborhoods in Palm Harbor, along with dozens of schools and places of worship, and some of the finest parks and recreational facilities in the state.


    Palm Harbor is located on the west coast of Florida (right on the Gulf of Mexico), just south of Tarpon Springs, north of Dunedin and Clearwater, and west of Oldsmar. As part of the Tampa Bay metropolitan area, the town is within commuter distance of both Tampa and St. Petersburg. In addition, Orlando is only 90 minutes away by automobile. Geographically, Palm Harbor is in the northern part of Pinellas County, one of the fastest growing counties in the state. For specific geographical directions, please see our Maps section.

    From the air, Palm Harbor is accessible predominantly through the Tampa International Airport. The St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport also provides service but on a much smaller scale.



    The temperature in Palm Harbor, as is typical for Tampa Bay, averages in the upper 80's/lower 90's during the summer months, and 60-70's during the winter months making it an ideal climate for "snow birds" escaping the ravages of winters in the north. Because of the warm winds coming up from the Caribbean, humidity is relatively high. Although we keep an eye open for hurricanes, such storms will more often hit the Atlantic coast or southern tip of Florida instead of the Sun Coast side.
