Clearwater, Florida: Home to Some of the State’s Best Family Beaches
Clearwater lies just north of Saint Petersburg, on the sugary sands along the Gulf of Mexico; it’s a popular spot for boating and swimming. A 30-minute drive away is Caladesi Island State Park, where you can fish or kayak near 3-mile trails that wind through mangroves and bays. Clearwater Marine Aquarium sits 2 miles from the resort. It’s home to one of the city’s biggest celebrities—Winter the dolphin, who starred in Dolphin Tale alongside Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd.
Downtown Saint Petersburg has upscale dining and shopping right along the seashore. If you can’t decide between beach and retail, head to Pass-A-Grille where the two worlds collide: there’s an outdoor art market, boutiques, and an ice-cream shop right on the seashore.
