“Friday and Saturday at dusk--a happening place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

A pier is a pier is a pier. But here the vendors and most especially the street performers are the thing--2 hours before and 2 hours after sundown Fri and Saturday. Great for older kids or couples.

“There is a charge to go to the end”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

The pier itself is just ok. You can walk half way out and then they want 50 cents to continue. I think this is getting to be more of the norm. Too bad. The surrounding park and beach area is excellent for kids. Nice shop on the beach for food, drinks and restroom. All very clean.

“Great place for sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Sunset fest every night of the year with vendors on the pier one hour before and after sunset. Friday and Saturday nights movies are shown right at the base of the pier in the park on a blow up movie screen. Fun place to be for families

“Must visit when in Clearwater”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

There is always something going on at Pier 60. The open park surrounding it is fun for kids and all ages. They have free movies in the park at sunset and the Pier itself has booths set up each evening where arts and crafts are sold. You can visit the end of the Pier for some amazing sunsets however you have to pay a nominal fee to walk to the end. Pictures of the sunset however can be taken anywhere along the beach and the pier so not necessary to pay extra to hit the end of the Pier.
