Laying on Gorgeous Beaches
Clearwater, FL, is a beautiful city on the western coast of Florida. West of Tampa and north of St. Petersburg and Largo, Clearwater contains both a large town and a section of land surrounded by water on either side; because of this, there are many miles of Clearwater beachfront. Hotels in this area have access to many different gorgeous sandy beaches, like Clearwater Beach, Sand Key Park, and the Caladesi Island State Park. What more does one need? Grab sunblock and a towel and simply relish in the white sands, blue water, and bright sky.
Out on the Open Seas
Of course, you can take advantage of the crystal clear ocean in many different ways. Sports fishing is a major industry in Clearwater, and you can take many different charters in your quest to find the biggest catch. Another great place to fish is Pier 60, a fisher's paradise and a center of fine dining, shopping, and sandy beaches. It also happens to be the perfect place to enjoy a sunset. Take to the sea during a booze cruise with The Tropics Boat Tours or a lovely dinner cruise with Star Lite Dining Cruises.
Soaring Through the Skies
Join in on an introductory flight on the highly-recommended Sky Surfing experience. Parasail untethered, float in the open sky, and experience what for some is a life-changing event. Stay in the area for a bit to train during more in-depth flight lessons, and you'll be able to take the reins and the aircraft into your own hands! You can actually receive the training to fly the small vehicle yourself, freeing you to surf the winds and explore the skies.
If you'd rather keep your feet on the ground, take The Beach Walk and tour up and down the sandy beaches barefoot with someone you love. Further inland, you can try to spot some of the many fiberglass dolphin statues scattered across the Clearwater region. On the other hand, why not try to spot real dolphins? These beautiful creatures will follow the wakes of the Little Toot Dolphin Sighting Boat.
Off The Beaten Path
Perhaps you want to venture off the beaten path a bit. Get away from it all with Paddle Out. Ride along on a paddleboard-equipped pontoon boat to a choice destination, and then paddleboard or kayak along unique islands, lagoons, and coves. Browsing along the coast via stand-up paddleboard is one of the best ways to view the Clearwater beachfront. Hotels in and around the city have access to many places off the beaten path; feel free to get out there and explore!
Fun for the Whole Family
Hotels can also be booked for families. Those with children looking for a family-friendly adventure could climb aboard the Pirate's Ransom and take part in Captain Memo's Original Pirate Cruise. There's acting like a pirate, watching pirates, and then there's actually taking part in a real-life pirate adventure on the high seas! Another great, kid-friendly activity includes enjoying the Congo River Golf miniature golf experience. This facility feature a great course, gem mining, and actual live alligators. Also note that Clearwater, Florida, is only about two hours from Orlando, which houses Disney, Universal Studios, and many other fun adventures. This makes for a great day trip for kids.
Having a Wild Time
Both kids and adults could explore the incredibly interactive exhibits at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, which rescues and rehabilitates animals back to health. Most famously, it is the facility that houses the injured dolphin, Winter, who now has a prosthetic tail, and her friend, Hope. The aquarium houses injured animals from otters to stingrays to sea turtles, and teaches children and adults about the importance of human responsibility and conservationism. You could also visit the Moccasin Lake Nature Park, which houses birds of prey and many other types of wildlife.
Exploring Indoor Attractions
Even if you happen to have the, unlikely, rainy day, you can still work on your surf skills while surfing indoors at Surf Style. Remember Sky Surfing? Well, you could also fly a Boeing 737 or a Formula 1 race car while indoors at SimCenter. Take part in the arts while in the area on a rainy day. See a concert, off-Broadway show, or live event at Ruth Eckerd Hall. Laugh, eat, and watch a locally-produced play Ed Fletcher's Early Bird Dinner Theatre, or see a great film at Clearwater Cinema Cafe. While in town, don't forget to enjoy the little things. Get great local foods at variety of nearby restaurants. Have ceviche at Clear Sky, pizza at Cristino's Coal Oven Pizza, beer and pretzel bits at Dunedin Brewery, fresh fish at Island Way Grill, or an awesome brunch at Wildflower Cafe.
