Things To Do In Clearwater

It almost goes without saying that one of the most famous activities in Clearwater is unwinding on its gorgeous beaches. Its natural beauty earned it the title of Florida’s Beach Town in 2013 as chosen by readers of USA Today. Situated on the West Coast of Florida, Clearwater Beach offers miles of white-sand beaches, mild Gulf breezes and (most famously) clear blue waters. Build sandcastles, collect seashells or simply let your cares float away on the gentle waves --- whatever type of beach vacation is your ideal, you’ll find it here. 

If you would like a more up-close view of local sea life, visit the Clearwater Marin Aquarium—one of the most fascinating things to do in Clearwater. It’s home to Winter, the bottlenose dolphin fitted with a prosthetic tail who was made famous by the movie Dolphin Tale. It’s also home to sting rays, a variety of fish, loggerhead sea turtles, Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles, river otters and more marine life.

Add a stop at Pier 60 to your list of things to do in Clearwater. It offers gorgeous views of the sunset and features a family-friendly event around dusk known as Sunsets at Pier 60, complete with street performers, live music and artists. During the day, stop by Pier 60 Park and let the kids loose on the covered playgrounds, where they can burn off energy on swings, slides, monkey bars and even a ship.
