Clearwater, Florida, located along the west coast of the state, is a city known for its scenic vistas between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. It's a unique spot with a population of 117,292 as of the 2020 census, making it a significant contributor to the dynamics of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan area. Renowned for its stunning Clearwater Beach, separated from the city by the Intracoastal Waterway, the city is also the geographic and governmental heart of Pinellas County. The landscape of downtown Clearwater has seen extensive modernization, featuring the "Cleveland Street District" with its burgeoning array of new bars, restaurants, and high-rise condos. Additionally, the area is known for its significant Scientology presence, heavily investing in downtown properties. The city spans a total of 39.2 square miles, where 34.86% is water, integrating the city’s layout and lifestyle deeply with its surrounding aquatic environment.Clearwater’s rich tapestry of history is deeply intertwined with the indigenous Tocobaga people and later European explorations which marked the area for its clear springs and bountiful waters. By 1835, the U.S. Army erected Fort Harrison here during the tumultuous Seminole Wars, setting a foundational stone for the city's growth. In the mid-19th century, Clearwater began to flourish as settlers, lured by the Armed Occupation Act of 1842, established homesteads. The city’s name, derived from the area's fresh springs, became official prior to the 1900s, evolving from Clear Water Harbor to simply Clearwater. The city officially became the county seat when Pinellas County was formed in 1912, spurring further growth. By the early 20th century, spurred by railroad expansions and the illustrious Belleview Biltmore Hotel, Clearwater became a burgeoning town, swelling in population and stature, particularly noted as a strategic training base during World War II.Today, Clearwater is not just a sun-soaked destination; it's a vibrant community rich with activities and cultural depth. Visitors and residents alike can enjoy a variety of attractions such as the BayCare Ballpark, which hosts major league baseball spring training sessions, bringing sports enthusiasts together each spring. The city’s cultural venues like the renovated Royalty Theatre offer a range of concerts and events, enhancing its cultural landscape. For nature lovers, Coachman Park provides a scenic waterfront space for festivals and concerts, making the most of the city’s pleasant climate. Clearwater also serves as a gateway to Clearwater Beach, where the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter the dolphin from the movie "Dolphin Tale," educates and inspires with its conservation efforts. Whether it's exploring the rich historical sites, enjoying a play at the Capitol Theatre, or indulging in some fine dining at nearby gourmet restaurants, Clearwater offers a robust blend of activities set against a backdrop of stunning coastal beauty.
