Fun and Sun for All

Holding the record for most consecutive days of sunshine in a single year, Clearwater offers long sandy beaches and proximity to other major cities in the Tampa Bay area.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Stirling Art Studios and Gallery and Painted Fish Gallery. Shop till you drop at St. Petersburg Clay Company and Dunedin Green Market. Change things up with a short trip to Nancy Markoe Fine American Crafts Gallery in St. Pete Beach (about 42 minutes away). There's much more to do: stroll through Clearwater Beach, examine the collection at Penny Lane Beatles Museum, meet the residents at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and learn about winemaking at Murielle Winery.

To find photos, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Clearwater road trip planning site.
