Clearwater lives up to its name and is the ideal destination for lovers and the epitome of perfect Florida sunshine weather all year round! Clearwater holds the largest number of consecutive sunny days at 768 with an average of 361 days of sunshine. Situated on the Gulf of Mexico this white sandy beach is only 35 minutes west of Tampa Bay and only a 20 minute travel from Tampa’s International Airport for those landing and in need of the closest beach! You wont be disappointed, Clearwater offers a diverse scene of seafood restaurants, bars, marina’s and beach activities.
If your desire is for a drunken adventure, take advantage of Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise where you can party with the crew on the adult deck, drink as much beer and wine as you please (there’s also a fully stocked bar) and search the open seas for dolphins! If flying with the seagulls is more your thing and would like a birds eye view of the beach there is always Chute em’ Up para sailing! Fun, gentle and safe, fly up to 800 ft in the air for that perfect view you can only experience from that height – seriously. We suggest going around sunset for all you lovebirds, it does not get more romantic than that! If your still not impressed, rent a jet ski and cruise the waters for yourself. Of course, there is always the option to relax the old fashion way with a drink in your hand and shades on your face underneath an umbrella. Just walk right over to the tiki bar located directly on the beach and order up a pina colada – cheers!
For the ULTIMATE Clearwater experience, we suggest visiting Pier 60 on a Friday and enjoy the multitude of activities that take place right at the pier. The celebration starts around 5pm and the best part is, IT’S FREE! Experience the night shows where locals will perform acrobatic events right there on the street referred to as “street shows.” Take pictures with a pirate and walk the pier where you can purchase handmade jewelry and other items, all very beachy and Florida themed – bring cash! Not everybody accepts credit cards on the pier.
That’s not even everything. Go to the Clearwater Aquarium and meet Winter the dolphin (you might recognize her from dolphin tale) and the newest dolphin edition, Hope. Discover first hand the marine biology that makes up Clearwater’s beautiful Gulf coast. Clearwater has so many activities to offer in and around the surrounding area – guaranteed to keep you busy, happy and a future vacation spot for years to come!
