Clearwater is a popular year-round travel destination in Florida that sits on the Gulf of Mexico. Clearwater holidays are ideal for families and groups, thanks to its miles of glorious beaches, temperate climate and proximity to the many visitor attractions in and around Tampa Bay.
The Saint Petersburg International Airport is well served by incoming flights. Just about a half hour drive from the main city, there are bus connections, cheap Clearwater car hire, Amtrak services and coaches available for a simple transfer. As with many US vacations, holidays in Clearwater are best managed with a rental car if visitors intend to travel further afield.
In keeping with the rest of Florida, there are a wide range of hotels in Clearwater, from large international brands, to smaller and family-run guesthouses. Cheap holidays to Clearwater are possible with self-catering villas and apartments, which are particularly popular with families and groups.
The beach is the number one attraction on Clearwater holidays and in the evening many visitors head down to the pier to watch the sunsets - it's quite an event and marked with street vendors, little souvenir shops, entertainers, concerts and more - all of which are free to attend. Other popular activities are the segway tours of Clearwater Sand's Key Park, ice skating, motorcycle hire and water sports. There are great restaurants and bars, a buzzing nightlife and excellent shopping facilities, as well as walking, cycling, horse riding and racket sports - in fact, most holiday sports plus plenty of other diversions are available along the beachfronts.
