There’s no other place in the world where you can find so many white sand beaches in one place. St. Pete/Clearwater is the only destination in America with two beaches in the Top 10 of TripAdvisor’s 2015 Traveler’s Choice Awards of the Top U.S Beaches, which is based on millions of traveller reviews.There’s laid-back St. Pete Beach, which landed at No. 2 on the list, and bustling Clearwater Beach, which checked in at No. 8. And if that’s not enough, you’ll be able to find your happy place somewhere in the 35 miles of beaches.
If you want activities, resorts and colorful drinks with tiny umbrellas in them, Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach have you covered. This is where families and mingling singles alike can fly over the water in a parasail, build a ginormous sand castle, or dig in and play beach volleyball—just like in the movies.
If weathered beach bars and an Old Florida vibe are more your speed, you can hang out in Treasure Island or Pass-a-Grille. For active families, Fort De Soto can’t be beat – with it’s gorgeous beaches along with playgrounds, picnic areas, camping, water sports and even a historic fort.
In addition to fantastic beach towns, the area's cities and art communities offer much more for you to discover. The PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship is played at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor. Winter, the famous film-star dolphin, resides in Clearwater. Dunedin is known for its Scottish heritage and annual highland games. And Hernando de Soto believed that the Fountain of Youth was in Safety Harbor, where today, there’s a fabulous resort and spa. St. Pete features world-class art museums like The Dali Museum and the Chihuly Collection, but the area also offers several lesser-known institutions that should be on every art aficionado's must-see list. These include the Morean Arts Center and Museum of Fine Arts in St. Pete, Industrial Arts Center in Gulfport, the Dunedin Fine Art Center and the Leepa Rattner Museum in Tarpon Springs.
