Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Much of Clearwater’s activity centers around the beach and the outdoors, and with a great climate and some of the most striking views on Florida’s Gulf Coast, it’s no wonder. Clearwater’s namesake beach is often rated among the best, and frequently number one, in all of the U.S. by various sources. The pristine white sand beach is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, whether you’d rather swim in the crystal-clear water or simply relax in the sun. Clearwater Beach is large enough to have areas that are both secluded or bustling, depending on the setting you’re after. The beach’s Pier 60, consisting of a park, souvenir stands, and snack vendors, is also a great location for fishing, during both daytime and nighttime hours.

If you’d like a break from the beach, Clearwater has plenty of other options to offer. Every year the city hosts the Sea Blues festiva two-day outdoor festival spotlighting live blues music and all types of seafood – in downtown Clearwater. The festival is held in February and admission is free to the public. Clearwater is also home to Moccasin Lake Park – a 51-acre nature preserve with winding trails throughout the trees, where one can view a wide variety of plants and wildlife. The park also offers classes, programs, and scheduled events.

Remember that if your tastes and interests are more metropolitan, Tampa and St. Petersburg are only a short distance away.


The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) operates the public bus system in Clearwater, as well as a trolley system which connects downtown Clearwater to St. Petersburg. Most of the buses run 7 days a week, cover much of the area, and operate from early morning to nighttime hours. For disabled individuals and those 65 years of age or older, fares are offered at discounted prices of about 50% off with proper ID.
