I am moving to Clearwater apartments with my young children. What are some fun places we can visit as a family in Clearwater?

We know it can be difficult to make the big move with younger children, especially if they are used to all their favorite local places in your current area. Apartments in Clearwater, however, are nearby many different options for family-friendly entertainment, including several places that combine fun with education! We hope this FAQ will help you get organized (and your children get excited!) for your upcoming move. Read through the rest of this article to discover all the best kid-friendly spots in your new city.

Do your children love to interact with animals? If so, you will be thrilled to visit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the home of the famous tailless dolphin, Winter, from the movie Dolphin Tale. This movie was a huge hit in the theaters – if your children have already seen it, we know they'll be excited about this rare opportunity! Located minutes away from Clearwater apartments, this aquarium features several animal exhibits, including dolphins, otters, stingrays, sea turtles, and sharks. A visit to this facility will allow your children to have a blast while learning more about these wonderful animals. If you are interested in closer encounters, make sure to schedule a dolphin photo OP, stop by the stingray tank for feedings, or schedule a nurse shark encounter and educational session. They even offer kayak adventures for guests who want to enjoy the open water.

We bet your children already have a regular spot for birthday parties in your current area. Clearwater apartments, however, will bring you closer to some great new places for your next special event! One of the most popular places for birthday events and entertainment for kids is Celebration Station, an entertainment park and arcade located off of highway US-19. The game room is absolutely huge, featuring two stories of arcade gaming and other activities, such as laser tag and air hockey. Just outside the game room is a large outdoor park area with several rides, including a mini rollercoaster, bumper cars, spinning tea cups, and the extremely popular golf cart track and mini golf course. Celebration Station offers many packages and discounts, especially for birthday parties and other events, and will even supply the food (pizza and cake) for your party. If you know your children will be restless while you move into your new apartment, you may want to let them experience Celebration Station right away!

If you're looking for something more simple to do during a quiet afternoon, apartments in Clearwater are nearby an assortment of movie theaters in the area. Options include the AMC Tri City Theater, located within a great shopping plaza, or the Cobb Theaters at Countryside 12. The latter is connected to the mall in case you want to stop and shop before the film! If you want to munch on something different than popcorn or nachos during the movie, Clearwater Cinema Café is another good theater option.

In addition to the above options, you can also visit the lovely Clearwater Beach, Congo River Adventure Golf, or the SimCenter! You will find fun for all ages near apartments in Clearwater.
