After spending a day in the Florida sun, kick back and enjoy the nightly sunset party at Pier 60 in Clearwater Beach. The party starts two hours before sunset and continues until two hours after. As the sun gloriously dips into the Gulf of Mexico, street performers and musicians entertain, while artisans sell their wares. The festival started in 1995 and is going strong seven nights a week, weather permitting.
Clearwater is located just west of Tampa/St. Petersburg. Clearwater Beach is separated from the main city of Clearwater by a small bay. You reach the beach by driving over an elevated causeway. Once there you will find marinas, resorts, restaurants and miles of white sand beaches. The beach area is wonderful for strolling, as the city has installed a palm tree lined walking path between the beach and Gulfview Boulevard. There is also plenty of parking right near the white sands.
