Beaches · Aquariums · Piers & Boardwalks
Fun and Sun for All
Holding the record for most consecutive days of sunshine in a single year, Clearwater offers long sandy beaches and proximity to other major cities in the Tampa Bay area. The city of about 110,000 attracts vacationing visitors with a good selection of year-round outdoor activities centered around the harbor including fishing, sailing, kayaking, and parasailing. You can easily explore all of the distinct beach communities by using the beach trolley service, which runs all day every day. After a hot day at the beach, stop by Clearwater's downtown, a walkable area packed with restaurants and bars. You might also have heard of Clearwater because it's the headquarters of the Church of Scientology. Plan your holiday in Clearwater and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our United States trip planner.
