Clearwater, Florida: Seaside Spectacles and Family-Friendly Beaches
At Clearwater Beach’s Pier 60, every sunset is a cause for celebration. Buskers belt out tunes, circus performers breathe fire, and stilt walkers teeter along the beachfront as the sun dips below the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a testament to how integral the beach—a short drive across the Intracoastal Waterway—is to Clearwater’s culture.
In 2013, Clearwater was named the nation’s best beach town by readers of USA Today. Clearwater Marine Aquarium is home to one of the city’s biggest celebrities, Winter the dolphin, who starred in Dolphin Tale alongside Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd. You can stroll the city’s Dolphin Trail to see more than 100 whimsical statues of bottlenose dolphins. Or take the 30-minute drive to Caladesi Island State Park, where you can fish or kayak near 3-mile trails that wind through mangroves and bays.
