We spent eight days in Clearwater at the Municipal Marina. This is a great area for checking out all the touristy things. There is lots to see and do within walking distance. The marina is home for tour boats of every kind, parasailing boats, and tons of deep-sea fishing boats.
There is a Tourist Information Office in the main building facing the marina. This building also houses the marina office, a post office, an inexpensive restaurant, beauty/barber shop, laundry, showers, gift shops, change machine, and a very small convenience store.
The #80 bus stops in front of the main building as does The Jolly Trolley. Several large grocery stores, West Marine, Boat US, and The Countryside Mall are all on the bus/trolley route. You may have to change buses to get to where you need to go but it's really easy to get around.
The trolley along the beach to Sand Key is a good, inexpensive way to check out the strip of beaches. The Tiki Bar at the Adam's Mark Hotel is a great place to watch the sunset. Frenchey's Restaurant (grouper sandwiches) and Cooter's are good places for sandwiches or happy hour drinks.
