As a graduate of Clearwater High School, the “Tornadoes” I grew up on Island Estates in the Clearwater Beach area loving every minute of it! Clearwater Beach ranked #1 Beach in the nation for the past two years, always ranking within top three “The Disney World of Beaches” with three miles of beach flanked by Caladesi Island and Sand Key beach to the south. Two resorts made the list of “Top 15 Resort Hotels in Florida” for Travel + Leisure’s 2020 World’s Best Awards. Pedestrian friendly as you walk the sidewalks for foodie fare of grouper sandwiches and styling beach couture; Pier 60 offers so much family entertainment with live street actors, venders and a covered playground for the young skin. So many fun rental ideas from Pirates Boat tours (we did one Thanksgiving Day) to Dolphin sightseeing, fishing or just rent your own jet ski or boat for the day. Upscale Beach living in new condo towers with amenities and glittering single-family homes on the beachfront or neighborhoods on sparkly waterways.
