First thing to do once you arrive, is to walk along the beautiful white sand beaches of Clearwater Beach. The area has a three mile stretch of gorgeous, white sandy beaches on which to walk, stroll, swim and relax. The three mile beach is lined with a tropical atmosphere of palm trees, luxury resorts, hotels and condominiums. All of the beaches are public and can be accessed easily. Walking at dusk will give you the chance to experience their famous sunsets. There are many fun and exciting things to explore and do in this wonderful Florida beach vacation destination. If you have not experienced this FL paradise in a while, or not at all, then you owe it to yourself and family to take a trip. One nice benefit is that the Central West FL coastal area is in close proximity to other popular cities such as Tampa, and St. Petersburg.
