Things to do near your Clearwater Beach summer rental

Many travelers can be seen kicking off their days in Clearwater Beach with a stroll along the Beach Walk, a multimillion-dollar development which counts a broad promenade, public artwork and live entertainment among its highlights. Take lunch at one of the waterfront dining spots or enjoy a picnic on the sugar-sand beach before heading off on a dolphin watching cruise from Clearwater Harbor. Departing daily, these cruises are a blissful way to spend the afternoon. Before heading back to your rental, the nightly craft and entertainment festival at Pier 60 offers the perfect close to the day.

Outdoor activities

Outdoor activities near Clearwater Beach vacation homes

Clearwater Beach offers a range of outdoor activities on land and sea. Vacation rentals put you within reach of activities like boating and fishing in the gulf or waterways, swimming and snorkeling, dolphin watching, surfing, kayaking, and canoeing.

Best time to travel to Clearwater Beach vacation homes

There's little better than spending the summer months enjoying a Gulf Coast getaway. Like the rest of Florida, Clearwater Beach benefits from seemingly endless sunny days and temperatures in the high 80s for much of July, August and September. That said, visitor activities are available for much of the year, so there's never really a bad time to hook yourself up with a Clearwater Beach vacation rental. Cooler water over the winter months may mean that swimming is off the menu, but still warm temperatures and year-round sunshine mean that sunbathing is most definitely not.
