Families, couples and singles alike will enjoy the many fun things to do in Clearwater, Florida. This city gained its name because of the clear waters surrounding it. It is also one of the cities in Florida that is divided; part of it is on the main peninsula of Florida and the other is a little island. This means that there are three different ocean perspectives to enjoy!

Clearwater Beach offers some of the most spectacular views. The ocean waves are gentle and warm. Clearwater Beach has pure white sand that is perfect for sunbathing or building sand castles.

Another interesting place to see for spectacular beaches near Clearwater is Treasure Island. This recreational area was settled by Native Americans 10,000 years ago, as they attempted to escape the Ice Age effects. Today Treasure Island is a beautiful two-mile stretch of beach where visitors can fly kites, jet-ski, swim, play volleyball or do any other fun recreational beach activity imaginable!

There are plenty of other fun things to do in Clearwater, Florida. The downtown area comes to life at night, with great nightlife venues offering visitors drinks, food and special events. Some nightlife venues feature live bands and entertainment, with well-known and local entertainers alike. Travel to Clearwater must also include several stops at local restaurants. While plenty of chain venues are found in the city, the best places to dine are the local restaurants. Sit-down fine dining venues and 'hole-in-the-wall' beach eateries are the best places to find great food, service and a unique atmosphere. Downtown Clearwater is also a good place for shopping choices. There are many different types of stores to choose from; souvenirs, clothing, shoes, handbags and any other type of merchandise imaginable can be found in the downtown area. Shopping is also plentiful along the beach. Vendors sell their hand-made clothing, art work, sunglasses and several other fun souvenirs and oddities.

When planning travel to Clearwater, be sure to allow plenty of time to take in the local sights and enjoy the city's culture. Every month of the year is a great time to visit, as this beautiful city along the Gulf of Mexico has a year-round mild climate.
