Happy Friday everyone! We made it…the weekend is almost here!
I’m here today sharing photos from a recent trip to beautiful Clearwater Beach, it was a “girls getaway weekend” for me and my two daughters…our home was invaded by a bunch of fathers and sons for a fishing weekend-so we girls decided to escape to the beach!
We stayed at the lovely Hilton Resort on Clearwater Beach- the location was perfect! We could walk everywhere- restaurants, shopping, the beach (obviously) here’s what we did:
Just after arriving, we enjoyed a lovely poolside lunch…
then we hit the beach for a little R&R
I just loved the bright yellow lifeguard stand- so cheerful and beachy!
The Hilton is located right next to the famous Pier 60, where you can enjoy fabulous sunsets every night!!
Next, we took a long walk on the beach, which was super crowded since it was around Spring Break…check out this adorable tug boat sand sculpture we happened upon!
We spent the afternoon on the beach, then got cleaned up and walked to the famous Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill Restaurant for dinner. I have heard about Frenchy’s legendary grouper sandwich for years and so I ordered one…
oh my! it was delicious and definitely lived up to the hype!!
After dinner, we decided to check out a neighboring hotel, The Sandpearl. I had been told by many people how beautiful it was so we decided to go inside for a peek…
once again, I was not disappointed. The lobby was elegant, coastal and beautiful…I absolutely loved it!!
How about these gorgeous seashell chandeliers? So fabulous!
After our visit to the Sandpearl, we happened upon this glorious little place…Gelato Bello! Since we LOVE gelato (maybe more than traditional ice cream) we just had to stop. I recommend the Tiramisu Gelato- delicious.
Finally, we made it back to our hotel in time for the Sunset Festival, and caught the acts of several entertaining street performers just before sunset.
All said, we had the most wonderful time and Clearwater Beach is a fabulous place to visit!
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend…
