All About Safety HarborNestled on Old Tampa Bay, the quaint town of Safety Harbor is located just south of Palm Harbor and north of Clearwater. Safety Harbor was first homesteaded by Count Odet Philippe, a French surgeon in Napoleon's navy, who is credited with introducing citrus growing to Florida. Established in 1823, the Count's homestead is now the site of Philippe Park, a tree-lined 122-acre setting on Old Tampa Bay. With large oaks and natural settings, the past comes to life in the quaint village atmosphere of Safety Harbor's Main Street. Visitors can canoe, kayak or sail along Old Tampa Bay possibly seeing an endangered Florida manatee. Incorporated as a city in 1917, Safety Harbor has maintained its family oriented community while preserving its environmentally sensitive lands and revitalizing its historic downtown business district.
Though Safety Harbor is close to many large cities with big happenings, many of the residents choose to stay right at home to enjoy some wonderful events this town has to offer right at the John Wilson Park Gazebo. Safety Harbor's 3rd Friday offers residents and visitors to end the work week on the 3rd Friday evening of each month by enjoying some live music and entertainment, while the Weekly Farmer's Market offers some of the freshest foods available each week. Residents can also spoil themselves with pampering at Safety Harbor Spa, one of the nations top ten spa and resort destinations, right here in their own town. This 189-room facility offers amenities such as three swimming pools, golf and tennis, spa treatments within their 50,000 square foot spa and fitness center, 30,000 square feet of flexible convention space, bay breezes and sunshine. Be pampered with one of the many spa treatments offered including massage, body treatments, skin care, hair care, nail care, and hydrotherapy. Enjoy on-site award winning dining featuring gourmet spa cuisine, American fare, and a bar with a casual atmosphere. Water from five mineral springs discovered by Hernando De Soto is used throughout the spa. Indian legend has brought the belief to those who frequent the spa today, that these mineral springs have healing qualities. Renew yourself and experience the world-class luxury of the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa for the day or even longer when you own Safety Harbor Real Estate.
