Things to Do
Pier 60 is a must-see while visiting Clearwater Beach. Visiting the pier is free and a great place to bring friends and family for nightly sunset viewings as well as live-music, crafters, street performers, and fisherman.
Pier 60 is also the perfect place to view the many dolphin families that swim near the shoreline. There are also plenty of bars, restaurants, and shopping all near Pier 60, too!
Clearwater Beach is always the busiest during peak summer months but, honestly, some of the best times to visit are in late September when it's not too hot or crowded.
