How much should I expect to pay for utilities in Clearwater each month, depending on the time of year?
With hot humid summers, expect that your electricity bill will soar during the really nasty months. Depending the size of your place and how cool you like things, expect at least $200 and half that the rest of the year. Other utilities are moderate but electricity in Clearwater, like all of Florida is high!
Is Clearwater famous for any kind of restaurant or food in particular? What's the local favorite?
Clearwater is not famous for any one food in particular, and is plagued by an abundance of fast food chains. There are, however, independent restaurants in the area. And, because of its oceanside location, fresh seafood is available in spades. Try Shells, a hole in the wall crab shack of sorts, Frenchy's, or Crabby Bills. Guppy's is also said to have the best grouper sandwich in town.
I've got dogs. What are the best places in Clearwater for being outdoors with pets?
The best places for being outdoors with pets in Clearwater are the city's various dog parks. Doggie Days Dog Park (at Crest Lake Park), Eagle Lake Dog Park, Enterprise Dog Park, and Sand Key Dog Park are fenced-in, off-leash dog parks where your pets can roam free. Caladesi Island State Park, however, can only be accessed by boat, and dogs here must be kept on a leash. Clearwater's beaches are also a good place to enjoy the outdoors with your dogs; just remember, as always, to clean up after them.
Do most people in Clearwater rely on public transportation?
Yes. For their daily commute, many people in Clearwater rely on public transit. Most of these commuters are using the bus. The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) bus service is currently Pinellas County's only general public transit. The service offers approximately 35 local routes, two express routes which cross Tampa Bay to the east, and a beach trolley that runs north and south along the county's roughly 25-mile long chain of barrier islands. One of PSTA's transfer hubs, Park Street Terminal, is located in downtown Clearwater. Plans are in the making for a future regional transit system, the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA). Presently, the Tampa/Hillsborough County area has a separate transit system, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART), which has an express bus route connecting Clearwater with Tampa.
Is Clearwater a family friendly town?
Based on safety and quality of education, Clearwater is not a very family-friendly town. With a crime rate of 53 per 1,000 residents, Clearwater's is quite a bit higher than the national average. As far as education is concerned, Clearwater fares slightly better. Public education is primarily provided by the Pinellas School District. Comprising 176 schools serving over 100,000 students, this district was rated better than 70.2 percent of school districts in Florida and 44.7 percent of school districts in the country.
What do people in Clearwater do as far as outdoor recreation?
Located on the Gulf of Mexico, much of what is fun to do in Clearwater revolves around the water. Activities include swimming, surfing, boating, sailing, kayaking, jetskiing, and fishing. Caladesi Island State Park to the north offers swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing, and saltwater angling, as well as a three-mile nature trail for hiking and wildlife viewing and a three-mile kayak trail through the mangroves and bay. The 8,500-acre Brooker Creek County Preserve, located 30 minutes northeast of Clearwater, offers four miles of hiking trails.
