Leave Orlando Behind for Lovely Clearwater Beach, Florida

Destinations, Family & Kids, Travel Videos, USA, Canada, Mexico

There is a lot going on in Clearwater, Florida. At the Clearwater Marine Aquarium you can meet Winter, the cousin of famous TV dolphin, Flipper, or if you are there at the right time of year, you can watch the world champion Philadelphia Phillies swinging away at their spring training facilities – but these are bonuses. The real allure of Clearwater Beach is the sun, the beach and the water.

The Clearwater Beach Day Trip from Orlando gives you the opportunity to explore the Gulf of Mexico in a way not many people get to. With a range of wonderful activities available in the package you can choose to take a cruise on the water or go deep-sea fishing.

Clearwater Beach Day Trips from Orlando: Video

As you can see from this short video, there are a number of reasons to visit Clearwater Beach on a day trip from Orlando – though if you’re a big sun and sea lover, you’ll be tempted to stay longer. A great way to treat the whole family, with the cruise option you get 1-hour on the open water aboard the yellow and pink adorned Sea Screamer where, if you keep your eyes peeled, you may get to see leaping dolphins.

The deep-sea fishing option on the other hand gives you the chance to get into the depths of the Gulf, where you may catch some of Florida’s most prized fish, including the gray snapper or sea bass. And do not be too shocked if you catch yourself a shark!

The full-day package also comes with pick-up and drop-off from your Orlando hotel, and even includes a delicious beachside picnic, where you can dine as the waves roar and crash in front of you. All taxes and fees are included and if you are looking to just catch some rays for most of the day, you can be taken to rent umbrellas and purchase other beach equipment. Whichever option you choose, Clearwater Beach is a relaxing place to spend time away from the grind!

10. Spend a day at Universal Studios Orlando

I can’t say enough about Universal Studios Orlando. Indeed, the rating it gets as the number one movie- and TV-based theme park in the world is justified. Spend a day and immerse yourself in an intoxicating, exciting blend of breathtaking rides, attractions, and cutting edge special effects and technology. Thrill seekers can test their mettle on the high speed Incredible Hulk Roller Coaster, overload their senses on the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit, or zip through the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the park’s newest ride.
