Two 45ish women going to Clearwater for the week of April 1-7th. We have a place to stay at a relative's house and a rental car. We do plan to spend much of the week on the beach but also want to know about the shopping and restaurants in the area. Of course with the car we can go anywhere nearby that sounds good. How is the construction and what times are best to get back and forth to the beach? The city website makes everything sound just fine but I don't want to sit on a bridge for hours. Should we head further north? Where are the good value (but nice) places to eat? We will be looking for a little nightlife too but nothing with partying Spring Breakers. Any ideas out there?
