Many,many street performers at dusk and they are really,really good! Work for tips,but after you watch them you will feel guilty if you don't leave something, also walk out on the pier, watch sunsets and of course shop and dine.

Good place to people watch while waiting for the sunset.
It's repetitious ... Same venders..same stuff to look at ... Nothing new if you have done this before.

The area around the pier is nice. The view is beautiful and beach is very clean. The pier itself was not impressive. I thought there we're be more unique vendors. The street performers were to aggressive with their requests for tips. Not what I expected. Parking hard to find and expensive. 15.00 a car if you can find a place

The pier was great on my first day and cost only $1.00 clean Restrooms, cheap cold drinks, lite supplies. Fishing gear. Great views and look back at Beach and all that comes with that. Sunsets great too. Second day in time for festival set up and the vendors and their wears. Some interesting things and some well you be the judge.

Having been to both Key West and Clearwater, the comparison with regard to the Pier area in each is an easy one. Key West has what feels like an older, more established performer-based fun and games area for sunset viewing. Clearwater has a lovely Pier, and lots of specialty stands and street performers helping usher in the sunset, but it seems more transient and less anchored in the culture of the area than Key West. There are also fewer nice restaurants near the Pier, which means crowds are not as well dispersed and there is not as much reason to stay in the area once the sun has gone down. All of it is fun, all of it is a wonderful way to watch the sun set, but it is not something I would do every evening in Clearwater, where it really was the place to be every evening in Key West.
