Florida offers many great vacation destinations, but Clearwater Beach has to be one of our team’s favorites. Read on to find out what this Florida summer vacation spot has to offer.

The RV specialists at our Lazydays RV Florida location are often asked about their favorite Sunshine State destinations. Of course, Florida is rife with summer vacation spots due to its warm weather, beautiful beaches, rich history, diverse cultural heritage, and famous theme parks and resorts. One of our team’s top picks is considered one of the best beach vacation spots in the country: Clearwater Beach, Florida.

Clearwater Beach has been consistently ranked among America's most beautiful beaches due to its sugar-white sands and the mild, temperate weather of Florida's west coast. USA Today named it Florida’s best beach town in 2013, and Florida International University professor and beach expert, “Dr. Beach”, designated Caladesi Island, located in Northern Clearwater Beach, the best beach of 2008. What’s more, it’s only about an hour from the Lazydays premier RV resort, and our Lazydays RV Tampa dealership and Lazydays Accessories & More.

During your stay, enjoy lounging on the beach, playing in the sand, swimming, boogie boarding, and walking the breath-taking promenade along South Clearwater Beach. Get out on the water by taking advantage of boat rentals, fishing activities, dolphin watching expeditions, and watersports. Also, be sure to take a ferry to Caladesi Island, one of Clearwater Beach’s main attractions, to view the area’s breathtaking natural beauty and pristine beaches, accessible only by boat.

If you’ll have kids in tow, you can’t miss Captain Memo's Pirate Cruise, an adventure for all ages that takes place on an authentic sail-driven pirate ship, “The Pirate's Ransom”, operated by a crew of swashbuckling pirates.

In the evening, wander through town where you’ll find a bright and bustling ambiance. Grab dinner at any of the excellent casual and fine dining restaurants or play a round at one of Clearwater's elaborate miniature golf courses, like Captain Bligh's Landing, an 18-hole course complete with caves, waterfalls, and a pirate ship. Your trip isn’t complete before picking up a souvenir or two at one of the numerous specialty stores in downtown Clearwater or the Cleveland Street district.

Clearwater Beach offers the best of both worlds: lazy days spent alternating between sand and surf, and action-packed afternoons spent exploring the city’s sights and scenes. Add this first-class Florida destination to your road trip, and, on your way, stop by Lazydays RV in Tampa to get a tune up from our expert RV technicians or to meet other members of our active RV communities.
