Clearwater Beach - Enjoy soft white sand and shallow calm waters, as well as an average of 361 days of sunshine a year here in Clearwater, these factors together making this the 'ideal playground for families'. Spend your day with your feet in the sand relaxing and soaking up the sun, or opt-in for a more adventurous beach day and take part in jet skiing, parasailing, or paddleboarding.
Pier 60 - During the nightly festivals, or 'Sunsets at Pier 60', you will see various artisans, crafters, and buskers doing things like fire breathing, escape art, stilt walking, painting, and magic. The festival starts nightly 2 hours before sunset and lasts until 2 hours after. This tradition began in 1995 and has only grown in influence since then.
Clearwater Aquarium - Your group will see rescued dolphins, sea turtles, river otters, sting rays, nurse sharks, and more, the most famous resident being Winter, the star of the hit movie Dolphin Tale. Learn all about Winter and how she has adapted to life without a tail, then learn about her friend Hope, another Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphin rescued after being found trying to nurse from her deceased mother.
Florida Botanical Gardens - The largest free-standing botanical garden in Florida, as well as the home of the nation's largest butterfly garden. The Florida Botanical Gardens land space takes up 120 acres, though only 30 of these are actually cultivated.
Spectrum Field (if in season) or Calypso Queen - Any fans of baseball, either minor or major league, will love a visit to Spectrum Field, the home of the Clearwater Threshers, a Florida State League, as well as the Spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Calypso Queen is a 65 foot, triple decked ship that is going to be really hard to miss, it's vibrantly colorful tropical design sticking out like a sore thumb in the water (in a good way!). Run by StarLite Cruises, a family owned and operated company started here in 1986, this cruise service offers various different theme options, ensuring everyone in your group will enjoy your cruise!
Sand Key Park- Sand Key provides the best of both worlds when it comes to outdoor Florida recreation: a gorgeous beach and an expansive park. Along the beach, which first opened to the public in 1984, your group can enjoy kayaking, swimming, and wildlife watching, with several endangered sea turtle and sea bird species making this 'rare salt marsh' locale home.
Cleveland Street District - The neighborhood is considered to be, as they say, 'the perfect blend of variety, convenience, and fun', and after a quick walk around we're guessing you will agree! Stop at the Capitol Theatre, Tampa Bay Escape Room, Sculpture360, or Station Square Park while walking the strip, or perhaps spend time at the Dreams of Dali VR Experience.
Honeymoon Island State Park - Honeymoon Island State Park is the stunning barrier island that sits across from St. Joseph's Sound, a highly popular beach park with an interesting history behind it. Aside from hiking this gorgeous trail and wildlife watching, you can also swim, fish, shell, bike, and visit the Rotary Century Nature Center. This learning center will teach you about the animals of the park, the natural resources, and history.
