Things to do in Clearwater

Spend your time in one of Vacasa's Clearwater FL vacation rentals for fun in the sun, sand, and surf on Florida's southwest Gulf Coast! Clearwater is also a popular destination for Tampa Bay vacation rentals, each year attracting families, couples, and retirees to its beautiful white sand beaches and upscale neighborhoods. 

Owning the record for most consecutive days of sunshine in a single year (361), Clearwater is a sun-drenched vacation destination - and you'll be just steps away from its tranquil waters and sun-kissed shores when you stay at any of our Clearwater vacation rentals!

Where is Clearwater, FL? 

Clearwater is located on the western edge of Tampa Bay on Florida's southwest Gulf Coast. It is bordered by the cities of Palm Harbor to the north and St. Petersburg to the south. 

Things to Do in Clearwater, FL  

Though you might be content to spend your days relaxing on the gorgeous sugar sand beach (and we won't blame you if you do), Clearwater offers an abundance of other activities that are just as invigorating.

If you've brought kids along, take them for a day of fun watching dolphins, stingrays, sharks, and many more sea creatures swim around at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Also guaranteed to be a hit with the kids, a ride aboard the playful Mega Bite Dolphin Tour Boat is a unique way to look for dolphins in Clearwater's calm waterways. 

For more adult tastes, head downtown to the Cleveland Street District, home to a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. 

Day Trips from Clearwater, FL

Many great day trips are within a short drive of Clearwater. If you're a sports fanatic, take an easy 23-mile trip east over the bay into downtown Tampa, where you'll have your pick from three professional teams that play in the area: The Tampa Bay Devil Rays Major League Baseball team, the Tampa Bay Lightning National Hockey League team, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers National Football League team. 

Sportsmen will love the great fishing in saltwater flats off Clearwater's coast, while nature appreciators are well-suited with a good hike or bike ride along the 13-mile long Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail. There are plenty of local fishing charters that will help you land a trophy mackerel, redfish, or even shark, and you could even take the whole family on a fun cruise over to the Gulf barrier islands with Dreamcatcher Explorations. 

So pack your bags, grab a swimsuit (and don't forget the sunscreen!) when you book a stay in one of our Clearwater vacation rentals! Gorgeous beaches, vibrant entertainment, and laid-back living await in beautiful, sunny Florida!
