Safety Harbor

Safety Harbor is a popular Pinellas county city of Tampa Bay. It is neither on the east side or Tampa Bay nor on the west side where the gulf beaches are, yet does it rest on the inner upper banks of Tampa Bay.  Since the turn of the century, Safety Harbor has been growing to be an enviable place to live because of its living space and opportunities, community events and well run City commission and Mayor Council.

With over 17,000 people living in Safety Harbor and millions vacationing each year to visit the famous Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, the vibrant downtown shopping, restaurants,  galleries and events, Safety Harbor is a buzzing city. The Spa is famous because of its Espiritu Santo Springs, known for their transformative and curative properties (attributed by Hernando De Soto) in his search for the Fountain of Youth. Names like Philippe, De Soto, McMullen-Booth all sprinkled the historical landscape when the Tocobagan Chiefdom was literally the exact location of Safety Harbor in the 16th century. Although not incorporated til 1917, Safety Harbor has an integral historical presence in the building of Tampa Bay, Florida. More can be discovered and appreciated while visiting the Safety Harbor Museum and Cultural Center.

If you are considering making Safety Harbor your new home, let me tell you young and old consider this the best kept secret of Tampa Bay. People choose Safety Harbor because it has a cozy sleepy town atmosphere yet is so close to the bigger cities of Tampa, Clearwater and St Petersburg where more action and jobs can be found.   It is also named a Runner Friendly Community because it provides runners/walkers pedestrian sidewalks, trails, and lanes for these exercise activities.  

Embellishing on recreation, Safety Harbor with its 5 square miles in breath, offers over 12 city parks for recreation and entertainment.  With its multitude of intergenerational events spaced throughout the year to keep its residents and tourists happy, a special Leisure Service is appointed to coordinate the hundreds of activities it provides.

The fishing pier and marina is located on the far south side of Safety Harbor and is also where Safety Harbor’s own Downtown Main Street as well as Bayshore Blvd is located. Traveling up the coast you find the famous Resort and Spa, and further north still is the legendary Philippe Park, still enjoyed by all outdoor enthusiasts of Florida fauna.

If planning on a single family home, count on spending around $200,000 in Safety Harbor, although there are some starter home areas for less.
