Welcome to Clearwater and its beach – on behalf of my colleagues on the Clearwater City Council and our residents, I am confident that you will enjoy your stay in the place we are proud to call “home.”
In addition to a flourishing business community, Clearwater is the place to come for your vacation or gathering. You will find sugar-sand, white beaches, pristine natural beauty, and dramatic sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico. In fact, last year USA TODAY has named Clearwater as the “best beach town in Florida” and the “best place to watch a sunset.”
Promising endless opportunities for exploration, Clearwater is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. From its water sports to hiking in Moccasin Lake Park to visiting with Winter the Dolphin or to attending the entertainment sponsored by Sunsets at Pier 60, you will enjoy exploring our city. You will find Clearwater to be friendly, accommodating, and vibrant. Follow the “Dolphin Trail” and it will become evident why Clearwater, The Sparkling City, is the place in which to live, work and play, not only in winter, but throughout the year.
