Clearwater Downtown

Clearwater Downtown is situated at the heart of the city in Pinellas County, a region in Florida, United States. Visitors and locals flock to this destination northwest of Tampa and St. Petersburg.

Ages ago, Clearwater used to be known only to Native Americans. During that bygone era, clear springs flowing from the banks into the bay were located along the high bluffs upon which City Hall and downtown Clearwater are now perched. Clearwater used to be where the Tocobaga lived. They settled around Tampa Bay during the first Spanish colonial period (1500s until the 1760s), though there were other chiefdoms around Tampa Bay.

Clearwater’s early settlers include Spanish explorer Panfilo de Narvaez, who set foot on the Pinellas peninsula back in 1528. He later passed away during a storm after traversing Florida on foot with a group of soldiers. In 1539, Hernando De Soto arrived at Tampa Bay, but later perished near the headwaters of the Mississippi River. read more…

In 1539, Hernando De Soto arrived at Tampa Bay, but later perished near the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

Other settlers and missionaries followed. In 1835, government set up the Fort Harrison for recuperating soldiers who fought in the Seminole Indian Wars. This was built on the bluffs where Harbor Oaks now exists. By 1841, the fort was abandoned. Dr. Odet Philippe, who served under Gen. Napoleon Bonaparte, was the first white settler. He and is descendants are still known among the long-time dwellers in Clearwater.

As a city, Clearwater was incorporated on May 27, 1915. From only 15,000 residents in 1950, the population of the city continued to swell until it reached the present number of citizens. Clearwater grew as people from different US states and countries became attracted not only to the climate but also to the toutings of early developers. The Florida real estate boom of 1921 also had an impact on Clearwater as a city.

As the hub of activities of the favored destination, present-day Clearwater Downtown beckons for its dining, shopping, and live entertainment attractions. The galvanized downtown area and street district overlooks the stunningly beautiful Clearwater Harbor and Marina. Dwellers and visitors take delight in the various festivals, concerts, and exhibits unfolding throughout the year.

Clearwater Downtown is testimony to the fact that the place is more than a sunny beach town. From a bluff overlooking Clearwater Harbor, people get a vision of the street retail and entertainment district that merges an urban setting conducive for walking with nice waterfront living.

In downtown St. Petersburg, family arts centers and museums captivate local folks and visitors of all ages. Rotating exhibits featuring glass flowers, drawings, and other artistic works draw the eye. Many of them draw attention to St. Pete/Clearwater’s Indian heritage.

There are also theater companies in the area that hold shows multiple times a week. For Clearwater Downtown visitors who get famished, there are several specialty restaurants and bistros offering tasty lunches for less than 10 dollars. There are also pizza and sandwich shops offering eats at pocket-friendly prices, not to mention street corner stalls selling hotdogs and other local fare. Indeed, while the best and most memorable attractions in Clearwater unravel seaside, the downtown area that is abuzz with activity fascinates many people to this day.
