Located west of Tampa, Clearwater is a great family beach destination with plenty of old-fashioned Florida charm. Sunset is celebrated nightly at Pier 60 where festivities include music, crafts and street performers.
To the north of Clearwater you’ll find Caladesi Island State Park, an unspoilt haven offering over three miles of white sands, fringed by sea oats and palm trees - reached by a short ferry crossing from Honeymoon Island State Park.
The city also hosts the annual Clearwater Jazz Holiday, which takes place in October and has played host to some of the finest musicians including Dizzie Gillespie, Tony Bennett and Stephan Grappelli.
