The year round warm weather made the area conducive to farming, citrus groves, and fishing. Warm mineral springs gave birth to spas and health resorts. Today Palm Harbor offers many residential communities to raise your family and wonderful neighborhoods with high rated schools. For a day of relaxation, visit one of our resorts, parks, or nearby beaches. For a step back in time, stroll down Florida Avenue in historic downtown Palm Harbor where many of the early buildings remain, open and welcoming just as they were in the beginning. Business services, dining, shopping and the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce are located in the downtown area.
