Palm Harbor Real Estate Information

As one of the most vibrant and prosperous places in Pinellas County, Palm Harbor is roughly forty-five minutes from downtown St. Petersburg and is primarily a residential community although pockets of commercial operations do exist throughout the area. With a population in excess of 60,000 people, Palm Harbor cultivates a charming atmosphere that celebrates the joy of Floridian living on the state’s west coast with the Gulf of Mexico.

The historic downtown Palm Harbor hosts a number of community events that are designed to bring the community together to celebrate annual milestones, community accomplishments, and perpetuate the local heritage. Palm Harbor’s First Friday Celebrations are fun for the entire family and includes rides and games for the children, opportunities to dine on great local food, and enjoy the unique works of local artisans. In October, the Taste of Palm Harbor Festival is held and is both a fundraiser and a entertaining weekend. Offering live music, samplings from over twenty local restaurants, and seafood features, the event not only draws local residents but also people from the surrounding area and even out-of-state guests.

The Pinellas County School District operates the public school system in Palm Harbor. Curlew Creek Elementary School, Cypress Woods Elementary School, Highland Lakes Elementary School, Joseph L. Carwise Middle School, Lake St. George Elementary School, Ozona Elementary School, Palm Harbor Elementary School, Palm Harbor Middle School, and Sutherland Elementary School are all located in the Palm Harbor area. Palm Harbor University High School, the area’s primary campus for students in grades nine through twelve, is associated with the University of South Florida who creates and implements a major portion of the school’s curriculum.

Several fabulous golf courses surround the Palm Harbor community, making it easy for residents to find a course to play on most weekends out of the year. Innisbrook Resort and Golf Course is the flagship of Palm Harbor’s golf scene, joined by Dunedin Country Club, Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Course, Countryside Golf and Country Club, Highland Lakes Golf Course, and East Lake Woodlands Golf and Country Club.
