Make yourself at home at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Clearwater, Florida. In no time you'll be swimming in the smooth turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, strolling nature trails past nesting alligators and sipping freshly squeezed Florida orange juice in a downtown café.
Enjoy an inexpensive day in paradise, soaking up the sunshine and playing in the surf at Clearwater Beach, near our hotels in Clearwater. This golden stretch of sand dotted with palm trees and pastel-colored seashells has calm waters fit for swimming. Your beach towel provides the best ocean view at dusk when the Gulf of Mexico's waters shimmer red-orange with the sinking sun. Explore less developed shoreline at Moccasin Lake Nature Park. Wooden boardwalks lead the way through mangrove forests that are home to ospreys, egrets, turtles and even alligators. The biologists at Clearwater Marine Aquarium take in Gulf Coast animal rescues, rehabilitating and displaying otters, rays and dolphins.
It's a short drive from our Clearwater hotels to the citrus orchards of rural western Florida. Stop at roadside stands to sample and buy locally grown oranges, tangerines and grapefruits, ideal snacking fare. Head to busy downtown Clearwater's Cleveland Street District for souvenir shopping. Elegant palm trees sway above brightly painted storefronts displaying colorful bathing suits, linen sundresses and leather sandals. Cleveland Street restaurants are known for their patio dining and menus packed full of freshly caught ocean fish and hand-picked local produce.
Book our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Clearwater to explore nearby Gulf of Mexico island beaches. Miles of smooth sands front Fort DeSoto, built on an island key in 1900 to protect Tampa Bay. The unspoiled strand at Caladesi Island State Park, just off the Clearwater coast, is fringed with palm trees and nature trails.
