Clearwater is great, low in crime e.t.c. Couple nice restaurants & beach is real nice. Caladesi Island (north of Clw Bch)has been voted one of the top beaches in the US. Just don't arrive at Spring break as trafic is horrific. They are building a new bridge onto the Island & trafic can be real slow in peak times. Are you bringing a boat with ya? Plenty of great boating & lots of ICW to cruise. Check out St Pete. Beach as well, IMHO better location to interstates & plenty things to do in 20mi radius. St Pete Bch is probably just 20mi. south of Clw.
