You can’t slow down in Clearwater. It’s an active area that’s been voted the best beach city in the U.S. time and time again – and for darn good reason. Clearwater’s beach scene isn’t just about sitting in the sand. We recommend hopping on the Dolphin Racer speedboat adventure or taking the family on Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise.
For more close encounters of the sea creature kind, plan a visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to the famously rescued dolphins, Winter and Hope. Tarpon Springs, a Greek fishing village located just north of Clearwater, is also worth a trip to learn about the local sponge harvesting and sample the Greek restaurants and markets.
If you’re looking for nightlife, the city center has plenty to offer, but Sunsets at Pier 60's nightly festival is the ultimate place to enjoy a colorful evening and snap some frame-worthy photos.
