Before I moved to Florida, every year my family and I visited Clearwater Beach. During every visit, I always stopped at the Ron Jon Surf Shop to buy souvenirs for friends back home. Not only do they have lots of souvenirs to purchase from, they also have a variety of different beach accessories. Whether you are looking for swimwear, surf boards, beach toys, etc., they have it all! After shopping, head up stairs for some brunch/dinner at Hooters Sport Bar & Grill. What I like about this place is the location. It is located next to Pier 60 where you will find boat and jet ski rentals, fishing equipment, bait shops, etc. It is also a short distance to the beach so after gathering your beach supplies, walk on over to the white sands and enjoy the hot Florida sun.
The Ron Jon Surf Shop was first founded in 1959 in Long Beach, New Jersey. Growing up, Ron DiMenna had a passion for surfing and wanted to sell surfing equipment for anyone who enjoyed the sport as much as he did. After opening his first shop Jersey, his business began growing. Two years later, he then made his way to Cocoa Beach, Florida where his business expanded and has grown into a world famous surfing destination.
If you are visiting Clearwater for vacation or if you are a local living on this island, swing by Ron Jon Surf Shop. You won’t be disappointed.
Every Friday and Saturday of every month, Pier 60 plays movies by the beach for FREE! This Friday on September 11, Pier 60 will be showing the film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. For all you pirate fans, gather your friends, family, spouse, etc., for a night under the stars. What’s neat about attending a move night on the pier is that the film is shown on a big projector. It’s almost as if your are in a movie theater but with a twist. The movie starts at 8pm and all you need to bring are blankets, beach towels, or a low lying beach chair. But wait… what’s a movie without popcorn? Concession stands will be on site to supply popcorn, drinks, candy, and other snacks to snack on during the movie. Practicing social distancing guidelines, please make sure to keep 6ft apart from other groups.

What better way to view Clearwater Beach than from a helicopter. Grab your cameras and book a tour with Tampa Bay Aviation to tour this beautiful island from above! Having been on a helicopter once, it was an amazing experience. I flew along the Dunedin causeway towards Honeymoon island, and flew south to Caladesi island. The views were unbelievable. Through a bird’s eye view, you will see the pristine blue waters, the white sand, and dolphins if you are lucky. You never realize how big the island is until you see it from aerial views. Definitely an unforgettable experience. During the tour, your tour guide will provide you with fun facts about Clearwater, and also take photos of you and the island during your trip. This makes the perfect birthday, anniversary, or honeymoon gift. I highly suggest reserving a tour today!

This past weekend, my family and I drove out to Clearwater Beach for some relaxation. We decided to do something different than what we usually do when we go out to the beach and spend the entire day soaking in the water or tanning under the hot Florida sun. We came across an Escape Room that was only a block away from the beach. We decided to check it out and I’m glad we did! An escape room is a game that challenges your mind. The point of the game is to gather clues and decipher secret meanings in order to escape the room you are trapped in before you run out of time. What’s neat about this particular escape room is that there are different themed rooms to choose from such as Pirate Ship, Cyber Attack, Area 51 Aliens, Zombie Underground, the DaVinci Exhibit, and more! The one my family and I did was the DaVinci Exhibit. This room was really cool because it was set up as if you were in an actual art gallery. There were paintings on the walls, statues placed around the room, and secret passageways. Given only one hour to work as a team to escape the room, it was fun trying to solve the riddles and codes. It was challenging to think out of the box but we were able to escape the room with 10 seconds left to spare. I highly recommend visiting the escape room on Clearwater Beach. It’s a different experience for anyone and it’s a great way to have fun.
The escape room is located at the Pelican Walk Plaza: 483 Mandalay Ave #210, Clearwater, FL 33767.

The Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) is a rescue, rehabilitation and release organization that centers around different types of marine animals. It is the home of Winter the dolphin, who is best known for featuring in the films Dolphin Tale 1 and 2. Winter is a one of a kind dolphin with a prosthetic tail. She was roaming the coastal waters in Florida and was rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Due to her condition, a prosthetic tail was designed for her ability to swim. Today, Winter and her other marine friends are living at the aquarium.
While visiting the CMA, social distancing guidelines are in tact. Staff and guest are required to wear mask at all times throughout their tour. During your visit, you can expect to see and learn about the many kinds of marine animals throughout the aquarium. What’s neat about the CMA is that you can go on animal experiences or dolphin tours.
During the animal experience, there are two programs to choose from: Shark care experience or feed a stingray. The shark care experience allows you to assist the animal care team in guiding and feeding Thelma, the resident nurse shark. The feed a stingray experience gives you the opportunity to learn about these marine animals and also hand-feed them. The dolphin and wildlife boat tours takes you on an adventure throughout Clearwater beach. While sailing through the blue waters, you will learn about dolphins and pass through a bird sanctuary.
