Palm Harbor Recreation

by Doug & Gwen Campbell at Sun Bay Associates

Finding recreation in Palm Harbor is really an easy thing to do.  Palm Harbor is an unincorporated community in north Pinellas County, FL with plenty of recreational activities.  There is the Palm Harbor Community Center, with a full calendar of recreation for everyone, from day trips to bus trips to distant locations, to dinners for the community and much more.

Of course, being on the Gulf of Mexico, Palm Harbor has terrific parks and water recreation.  The fishing in Palm Harbor, actually in the water off Palm Harbor, is great.  This time of year some of the fish being caught are spotted sea trout, redfish, sharks, BIG flounder, Spanish mackeral, kingfish and many more.  The boating this time of year is wonderful.  The weather is not too hot and the water is still pretty warm.  Many neighborhoods in Palm Harbor have direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, making all water recreation very convenient.  Baywood Village is one of several such neighborhoods.

Golf seems to be a great recreation for our visitors from the north.  There are numerous golf courses in Palm Harbor, for all skill levels.  We even have one of the most beautiful, and toughest golf courses in the country, right here in Palm Harbor.  It is the Innisbrook Golf Resort.  This November 11-13, Innisbrook is hosting the LPGA Legends Tour Championship.  Not only can our golfing fans enjoy their golfing recreation, they can watch some of the best golfers in the world play right here in Palm Harbor.

Palm Harbor has its own YMCA, its own library, ball fields and so very much more.  The recreational opportunities are almost limitless.  Couple all of this with the current prices in Palm Harbor real estate and it is easy to see why so many people come to Palm Harbor as snowbirds, or as full time residents.
