Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach, Florida

Sunsets, dolphins and tranquil retreats create unforgettable family memories

Named for its crystal-clear waters, Clearwater Beach is a fantastic choice for families with children of all ages. The expansive shores, stretching for miles with shallow waters, make it a perfect haven for families and Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach Resort, strategically located just steps away from the beach, provides an excellent base for family vacations, whether it’s a weekend retreat or an extended getaway.

The resort boasts 343 luxuriously appointed guest rooms with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway. Guests can indulge at Pallavi Spa and enjoy three onsite dining options, including the signature beachfront restaurant, Ocean Hai, DocK’s Pool Bar & Grill, and the lobby bar, eSKPades.

Pier 60 is the top family attraction in Clearwater Beach

To make things even better, the resort is also steps away from the iconic Pier 60, offering mesmerizing views of the Gulf of Mexico. With a 1,080-foot fishing pier and a recreational park featuring telescopes and covered pavilions, Pier 60 is a top attraction in the area.

Whether you’re shopping for unique souvenirs, enjoying street performances, or watching the sunset while playing in the warm waters, spending an evening soaking in the vibe and energy of Pier 60 is a must.

Sunsets at Pier 60, are another Clearwater Beach tradition, providing nightly entertainment from two hours before sunset until two hours after.

Find classic Florida fun for families on the doorstep

Embark on the Little Toot dolphin tour for a sunset rendezvous with Clearwater’s dolphins which your kids will love. Then, after the tour, explore dinner options in town, such as global cuisine at Living Room on Main or exciting tastes at Marina Cantina.

Don’t miss the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, renowned for its care of Winter, the star of the Dolphin Tale movies. Visitors here can enjoy learning about rescued dolphins, sea turtles, otters, and other marine animals, with the added option of yoga with the dolphins for the entire family.

Family explorers who venture beyond the beach on longer vacations should make for Dunedin. This charming town west of Tampa is known for its historic downtown, four miles of waterfront and a wooded, tropical setting. You won’t be surprised to find Dunedin is also known for its relaxed lifestyle, although the diverse family activities on offer here are perhaps a bit less expected.

For an adventurous escape, Honeymoon Island beckons with crystal-clear waters and the Osprey Trail. Despite its name suggesting a romantic retreat, this Florida State Park is ideal for the whole family. Depending on the time of year, some hiking trails are available. To elevate the experience, consider renting a kayak to explore around the island or taking the ferry to nearby Caladesi Island, recently voted America’s Best Beach.
