20 Best Beaches In The US You *Need* To Vacation On
Clearwater Beach, Florida
Many travelers, including those over at TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards, consider Clearwater Beach to be not only the best beach in Florida but also in the entire United States. Considering the 88 thousand miles of US coastline they had to choose from, that’s no small feat for the rare white sand beach. Clearwater Beach averages 361 days of sunshine every year, and the city prides itself on the beach’s cleanliness and safety. A Sunset Cinema series shows free outdoor movies every weekend next to the water, there’s no shortage of eateries and shops on the boardwalk, and its location on the Gulf gives it calmer surfing conditions and finer sand. Don’t miss the nightly sunset celebration with flame-throwers, dancers, and performers on the pier.
