Sunny Clearwater is the county seat of Pinellas County and is located between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Surrounded by water, the city offers abundant opportunities to be outdoors and exercise. There is a vibrant downtown, live music venues, sports and much more...including award winning beaches!
Downtown Clearwater is being revitalized in a big way! A new outdoor concert venue on the water is being planned and many new restaurants and shops have opened their doors. The last Friday of every month is "Blast Friday" with streets shut down to traffic and live music set up on a stage. There is ferry service over to nearby Clearwater Beach from the downtown marina. Or you can ride your bike over the Memorial Causeway to the beach for a scenic and healthy trip.
Award winning Clearwater Beach is very wide and has sugar-soft sand. You can spend the day basking in the sun, walking the miles of beach or fishing in the Gulf. Or all of the above! Once you have had enough sun, you can enjoy dinner and drinks at one of the numerous quality restaurants all within walking distance. After dinner, head back to the beach for a sunset you simply have to see to believe!
Clearwater is the home of Phillies Spring Training, and has been since 1948. The ballpark in Clearwater offers great views of the action on the field and just about every fan amenity you can think of, including a bustling tiki bar overlooking the field! Spring Training takes place in February and March, and then the Minor League Clearwater Threshers play in the ballpark until early September. The city also has many amateur and youth sporting facilities. With great weather year-round, Little Leaguers enjoy two seasons each year and there are numerous amateur softball and baseball tournaments. There are hundreds of golf courses in the area to challenge all skill levels. The 45 (soon to be 75) mile long Pinellas Trail cuts right through downtown and offers awesome exercise opportunities.
Clearwater also has numerous job opportunities with many Fortune 500 companies located in the area. Hospitality jobs are abundant as are recreational jobs. The Clearwater area has a vibrant economy with a wide variety of housing opportunities. Two airports service the area, with Tampa International just 19 miles from the beach. Whether you are looking for a condo on the beach or a nice home in a well-established neighborhood with good schools, give me a call and we can begin exploring opportunities!
