Clearwater Beach Spring Break

I'm back!  

We had the very best time on our little spring break getaway last week.  Florida is my happy place and we had so much fun discovering a new beach city in Clearwater.  The weather was gorgeous, although it wasn't too hard to beat the freezing temps we were leaving behind!  It was around 80 degrees and sunny almost all week - except for one rainy morning which was the perfect excuse to do some shopping at the outlet mall :) - and we took full advantage of it.

Our hotel - the Hilton - was beachfront and we spent every possible second out on the beach.  Swimming, hanging out at Tommy's Tiki Bar, playing volleyball or watching the sunset... it was pretty great.  Thanks so much to Lindsay and Amanda for all of your recommendations - you guys were spot on!  

A few pictures (all from my iPhone, sorry for the terrible quality!)... 


...and highlights from the past week in Clearwater Beach.

Sunsets at Pier 60 
Pina colada's at The Sandpearl beachfront bar
Anything at Clear Sky Cafe - we ate here twice for breakfast and lunch!  So good.

Red velvet ice cream at The Ice & Cream Creamery
A fancy dinner at The Beachcomber
Relaxing at Tommy's Tiki House
THE BEACH! :) 

Hope you all had a great week, too - can't wait to get back to regular scheduled programming here on the blog!  Happy Monday!

  13. Yeah!!!!! So excited that you like the Clear Sky Cafe!!! I wish I could have gotten out there to see you! Clearwater beach sometimes feels like another continent away with all the traffic out there when you live "inland" like us common folks over here ;-) I'm so glad you had such beautiful weather!!!

  25. All those yummy drinks and food is making me wish for a beach trip asap! Our family wants us to join them on one in June. Vivi will only be about 5 or 6 weeks old, so I'm a bit nervous about it, but thinking we may just try it because this mama needs a beach trip BAD!:) So glad you guys had a good time!:)
