At the head of Old Tampa Bay lies the City of Safety Harbor, a secret little hideaway, neighbored by the major cities of Clearwater and Tampa. This quaint community of 7,575 families boasts a famous resort, distinctive shops, award winning restaurants and plenty of family fun. There is certainly something for everyone, from beautiful parks laden with historical significance and nature's artwork, to cultural venues for the cosmopolitan visitor.
Downtown Safety Harbor sets the mood for the community. With its palm treed thoroughfare, canopied sidewalks and brick lined streets, "Main Street" offers you the opportunity to succumb to your curiosity while perusing through captivating shops, sampling new cuisine and rediscovering a love of art displayed in one of the area's finest galleries on Main Street. Begin your exploration with a visit to the Chamber of Commerce. Located at 200 Main Street, this original bank building housed the first Town Hall when Safety Harbor was incorporated in 1917.
You will find history alive throughout Safety Harbor. The world famous Safety Harbor Resort & Spa is a landmark in the community with its historical Espiritu Santo Springs. Since the turn of the century, tourists have been traveling to this area to be rejuvenated by the spring waters. By ferry from Tampa or stagecoach from Clearwater, it was a full days adventure to visit the area. Now visitors fly in from around the world to experience the resort lifestyle.
