Things To Do In Clearwater Beach With Kids

Clearwater Beach is a paradise for adults and kids alike. In fact, nine of the ten things mentioned so far in the post have the potential to be great fun for children, too.

The beaches are amazing spots to build sandcastles, play in the gentle waves, and find shells.

Many of the restaurants have kid menus (gator bites, anyone?), and Pier 60s Sunset Celebrations offers family-friendly fun.

The Clearwater Aquarium is also a great place for kids. Be sure to hook them up with the audio tour (there’s a special version for kids).

Children are bound to love the encounter with dolphins, the snorkeling and water park at Indian Rocks, and the Hulk Hogan store in the Pelican Plaza.

Here are a couple of bonus activities:

Moccasin Lake Nature Park

Shady walking paths, bald eagles, rescued birds of prey, a playground, a butterfly garden, and a tiny reptile museum await at Moccasin Lake Nature Park. Best of all, this activity is free.

Your kids might enjoy the chance to become junior rangers.

Watch Minor League Baseball

If you and your kids are baseball fans, catch a Clearwater Threshers game while you’re in the area.

Be sure to check the website for coupons, such as Dollar Tuesdays.
