Spring Break in Clearwater Beach

We are 2 pretty laid back, open-minded 59 year olds from England, who fancy a week in the sun next March

I understand this is Spring Break time and was wondering how much this affects the area, we're looking at March 16th-ish.

Any pointers would be much appreciated

We are the same age, have been there during SB for 9 years now...it is busier but we actually enjoy the "vibe" of SB. Also, SB is now spread over a few weeks with different school systems off at various times.

My only advice-if you plan to leave the isle of CWB-do it first thing in the morning and get back quickly...traffic can be very bad (if the weather is good), particularly on weekends. Of course this advice doesn't apply if you are sight seeing for the whole day elsewhere. The busiest beach area is right at Pier 60 where most of the breakers seem to hang about. Don't let it scare you off, enjoy!

Hi Graham, This is Spring Break as you mentioned and things can be quite busy this time of year. It is a great time to visit as the weather is gorgeous, but you definitely want to be prepared for certain challenges such as parking and wait times at restaurants. The north end of Clearwater beach is a good bet as the Spring Break crown typically stays on the south end (the north is where the locals hang out and is much quieter). Check out the Palm Pavilion Inn. They have great rates, free parking, and are in a much quieter area of the beach. Best of Luck, Art
