The City of Safety Harbor
The City of Safety Harbor was incorporated in 1917. Safety Harbor is a quaint town anchored by a Main Street with the classic Safety Harbor Resort & Spa + a celebrated Marina. This close knit community features classic bungalows, villas and newer construction in this quaint setting.
According to the City of Safety Harbor website, it was originally settled by the Tocobaga tribe, prehistoric Safety Harbor served as one of the largest settlements in their chiefdom. However, the introduction of Spanish explorers in 1528 gave way to folklore surrounding the local area and mineral springs—many of which is still commonly discussed today. One of the most enduring symbols of Safety Harbor remain our mineral springs. According to local folklore, they were named the Espiritu Santo Springs in 1539 by Hernando de Soto during his search for the famed Fountain of Youth. Ever since, the mineral springs have acted as one of the many attractions which lured residents and tourists alike to Safety Harbor.
The City of Safety Harbor offers a wide array of offerings for its residents and visitors. Check out the City of Safety Harbor website!
