We have Recently Passed our weekend at Clearwater Beach FL. We usually enjoy the beaches at all times of the year especially in FL, but spending weekend in mid October was great.. not too hot and not too cold.. it was just perfect. The beach was quite busy even after 11:00 at night people still are in the ocean, and lots of couples stroll along the shore near the Clearwater Beach Pier - there is a sense of safety because of the amount of people and the presence of police in Clearwater Beach.
The outdoor evening action starts shortly before the setting sun sizzles into the ocean against a backdrop of a usually perfect sky filled with puffy, white clouds. The best way to experience Clearwater Beach and its environs is by boat, and there is every type of boat adventure imaginable at the marina. Cigarette boats, fishing boats, nature tours, snorkeling boats, air-conditioned paddle boats, and even a pirate ship tie up at the docks.
There are some construaction work going on these days at clearwater area. I should not say its is a great place for young people looking for a great night life at beach but it is a decent place for a family oriented people coz lots of places to hang out with kids. The best thing is the place is very much affordable. Not too expensive as fas as eating and lodging is concerned. There are pretty good hotels and resoters located right on the beach and they are usually available with reasonable package.
Especially They have one Pirates cruise for kids thats is awesome. Overall we enjoyed our weekend at Clearwater Beach.
