Clearwater Florida Real Estate: Outstanding Values, Exciting Living
By Robert Lipply

Clearwater is a great place to live. It is the second-largest city in the area, offering many enjoyable activities and is one of the most popular vacation spots in Florida. Thereís so much to do and see, from the emerald blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico on Clearwater Beach to the great shopping and dining up and down Gulf to Bay Boulevard. Living in Clearwater will keep you hopping!

Spending the day or evening at Clearwater Beach is a wonderful way to pass the time. For dining and entertainment, I recommend stopping at Shepardís. Day or night itís one of the most popular spots on the beach. In the mood for a great grouper sandwich? You canít beat Frenchyís Saltwater Cafe. There are also a few dinner cruises along the Intercoastal waterway that are both relaxing and fun.

We also love spending time at Caladesi Island and Sand Key Beach parks, where we enjoy swimming, fishing, picnicking, canoeing and walking the nature trails. You can take a ferry boat to Caladesi Island where you can enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the island without the sound of car motors and horns. Sand Key Beach offers a beautiful beach where you can delight in the balmy breezes and beautiful sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico.

Clearwater has many annual events that are free or low cost to the public. Each October we attend the Jazz Holiday weekend, where we can listen to popular Jazz musicians such as the popular Branford Marsalis and Koko Taylor while enjoying a beautiful sunset overlooking Clearwater Bay. The Jazz Holiday has brought in over 25,000 people and is one of the most popular events that we look forward to. In the spring we enjoy the many activities offered by the Fun N Sun Festival and enjoy their parade. Clearwater is also the winter home to the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team where we spend the day watching one of America's favorite pastimes.

We enjoy visits to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where we see Sunset Sam, a dolphin world-renowned for his painting. The Aquarium is one of 8 facilities in the United States, and the only one on the west coast of Florida, authorized to rescue and rehabilitate marine mammals.

If you enjoy water sports or the outdoors, Clearwater property is for you. Homes in Clearwater range from being built back in the early 1900s to newer homes built in the 2005s. At any given time, there could be thousands of homes available, ranging in price from condos in the low $90Ks to exclusive waterfront homes well above $3M. Clearwater is also centrally located to Tampa and St. Petersburg and is only 90 minutes away from Disney World and Sea World in Orlando, Florida. Clearwater is a great place to call home or to buy real estate.

There are thousands of available Clearwater Florida homes for sale. Known for its miles of white sand beaches, accommodations, shopping, casual beach restaurants, breathtaking sunsets, and highly valuable real estate, Clearwater is a great place to live.
