Angela A's City Tips

  • If you plan to spend time outdoors, put on that sunscreen. Nothing is less romantic than sunburn.
  • Do not miss the sunset. Whether you see it from the deck of a restaurant, on a boat out on the gulf, or from a little spot on the sand, it will transform your night!
  • Clearwater is easily walkable, but it is also romantic to ride the trolley.

    Angela A Says:

    The Clearwater Aquarium is not your average aquarium, filled with rows of bubble tanks. This is literally a working aquatic hospital, where injured, sick, or stranded animals are brought to be rehabilitated, and then hopefully returned to the wild. This place totally warms your heart, making it perfect to experience with your significant other.
