Clearwater has a water frontage on the Gulf of Mexico and Clearwater Bay of four miles, a two-mile water frontage on Tampa Bay and two miles
of beach frontage on the Gulf. The Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, of which the Million-Dollar Free Causeway is a part, stretches-from the Western City Limits
at Clearwater Beach to the Eastern City Limits on Tampa Bay, a total distance of approximately seven miles.

~HE county seat of Peerless Pinellas, a county that is in itself a diminutive Florida, in that
(^ r) it is a peninsula reaching out into the semitropical waters of this wonderland, is a truly
progressive year-round resident and businesss city and one of the most popular tourist
cities in the State. Florida is in its infancy--i�s iuit -oetting a start, but is already the real winter
playground of America. Florida's all good! Our personal appeal is somewhat magnified over
the general Florida appeal, however, as our elevation is the highest of any coast city in the State,
a high bluff overlooking Clear\\:;ter Bay, the (_;uil'f of Mexico and Tampa Bay.

HE Clearwater Country Club eighteen-hole course is one of the sportiest in the country
and moderate fees are charged the tourists who are finding this course more popular each
season. The grass greens are commodious and scientifically designed, and the fairways just
narrow enough to be interesting, stretching over rolling territory with natural hazards.

T IE scenic beauty is a pronounced feature of the Clearwater Country Club course.
Fairways bordered by dense woodland and citrus groves are extremely distinct
in their appeal to all golfers. It is a pleasure to putt on such greens as these. The
annual Florida State Amateur Championship will be played over this remarkable
course in April, 1926.

T HIS unusual golf course is distinctly unlike the average flat Southern course, the rolling
fairways and commodious grass greens reminding one of the better courses throughout the
North. Length of the 18 holes 6,172 yards and par 71. A winding brook provides a number
of water hazards and one gets many a thrill in approaching the greens bordered by this obstacle.

CLEARWATER Athletic Field, erected by the city at a cost of $25,000, is the finest in the South.
This field is the permanent training quarters o'f the Brooklyn National League Baseball
Club. The stands and bleachers are thoroughly modern structures and the clubhouse is
equipped with shower baths, locker rooms, offices, trainers' quarters, etc. The playing field is
of big league caliber and larger than most of those in both the American and National Leagues.
Brooklyn plays many big league teams here during the winter months.

and dominoes, the world's largest checkerboard for championship matches, horseshoe lanes and
an abundance of shaded seats for relaxation and rest. This is the home of the various tourist clubs,
where they gather together for the development of a better spirit of fellowship, compete in various

AWN BOWLING is one of the most popular games in this beautiful park. This ancient and honor-
able game is enjoyed every day and night by enthusiasts of the game from almost every Prov-
ince in Canada and many States of the Union. Many handsome trophies are won each season by
members of the Clearwater Lawn Bowling Club, and a regulatedschedule results in matches be-
tween this club and clubs from the neighboring cities of St. Petersburg and Tampa. A small resi-
dential park in the north side of the city also contains a tennis court and a new park on the Tampa
Bay side of the city is now being hewn out of the tropical shrubbery on the water's edge.

CLEARWATER BAY is a land-locked harbor at the foot of the highest elevation of any Florida
coast city. The City Tourist Park and many imposing homes overlook this beautiful
body of water, beyond which, separated by the keys, lies the Gulf of Mexico stretching to the
distant horizon. The gorgeous sunsets from this unusual spot are a source of never-ending
wonder and delight. Deep water is also found on the Tampa Bay side of the city where a com-
mercial pier is being constructed at the eastern terminal of the Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard.

St' 7 Springtime all tfie time in Clearwiater'

FLORIDA fishing has long since been conceded by experts as being the finest in the world, and
nowhere in Florida will be found a greater variety and abundance than in the semitropical
waters adjacent to Clearwater. Here you will find not only the wonderfully game silver tarpon,
ranging in weight from fifty to two hundred pounds, and the equally game kingfish, but the
grouper, sea trout, snapper, channel bass, deep-sea bass weighing from fifty to six hundred
pounds, devil-fish and jewfish. The delicately flavored pompano and Spanish or Florida
mackerel are also caught in large quantities.

IN addition to these varied members of the finny tribe, the waters around Clearwater abound
in the exceptionally delicious stone crab, oysters, scallops and the succulent coquina, from
which the most delightful broths and soups are made.
Our fresh-water streams and lakes of awe-inspiring beauty abound in many varieties of
fresh-water fish, principally among which is the big-mouth bass.
Guides with motorboats and tackle are procurable at reasonable rates to take you to the enu-
merable and varying fishing grounds indicated on the map shown on the last page of this booklet.

Tr HE public buildings, churches and institutions of Clearwater would do justice to a city of a
hundred thousand population. The Municipal and Chamber of Commerce building, the
Pinellas County Courthouse, the Carnegie Library and the City Hospital are works of art. Clear-
water's three bank buildings are a credit to any city and in June, 1925, these banks had deposits
aggregating over nine millions of dollars. Mortgage and investment companies and the Clearwater
Building and Loan Association augment these figures very materially. The Capital Theatre, with
its wonderful pipe organ, concert orchestra and large seating capacity, shows first picture releases
and vaudeville, while the Fort Harrison Theatre is devoted to pictures exclusively.

C LEARWATER and Pinellas County have led for years in the production of grapefruit,
and the finest groves in the land are located just outside the city limits. Seven mod-
ern fruit packing houses, where the fruit is prepared and packed for shipment, do a thriv-
ing business in Clearwater, and there are twenty within motor-truck hauling distance.
Over a million boxes of grapefruit and oranges are shipped out of Pinellas County each
year, which bring into the county approximately four millions of dollars. The Hills
Brothers Company Canning Plant at Clearwater shipped the past year one million cans of
the famous Dromedary Brand of grapefruit. This extremely modern and sanitary plant
is open to visitors at all times.

CLEARWATER is the county seat of Pinellas County, in
which are located three other progressive cities of
national reputation, St. Petersburg of tourist fame,
Belleair of golf fame, and Tarpon Springs, the largest
sponge market in the world and the only sponge exchange
in the United States; Dunedin, Oldsmar, Pass-a-Grille,
Largo, Safety Harbor, Ozona and Sutherland are other
progressive cities that are growing rapidly. A network of
paved highways, costing ten million dollars, connects all
of these points.
St. Petersburg is 18 miles south of Clearwater, Tampa
30 miles east and Jacksonville 212 miles north, all connect-
ed with Clearwater by improved brick highways.
Two main trunk lines, the Atlantic Coast Line and the
Seaboard Air Line, provide through train and Pullman
accommodations from all points in the North, East and
West without change or other inconveniences. From the
discomfort of winter to the pleasures of summer with the
speed of the Nation's best trains. "The Pinellas Special",
"The Florida Special", "The Dixie Flyer", "The South-
land", "The Seminole" and "The Floridan" on the At-
lantic Coast Line and the "Suwanee River Special", "The
Floridan", "The Orange Blossom Special", "The Florida
Limited", "The Fast Mail" and "The Carolina-Florida
Special" on the Seaboard, are popular, well-known, solid
Pullman trains, operating directly from New York, Phila-
delphia, Boston, Buffalo, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Colum-
bus, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago and all intermediate
points without change. From the icy North to the Land
of Sunshine without leaving your car. The new Cross-
State Railroad runs directly from Clearwater to Palm Beach.


The Clearwater municipal gas plant provides fuel for
cooking.
The Clearwater Motor Club, an American Automobile
Association organization, has a membership of 225, where
complete touring information is available. You can be
routed over splendid highways to and from the North direct
from and to Clearwater. Other thriving clubs and fraternal
organizations are the Rotary Club, Yacht Club, Lawn
Bowling Club, Roque Club, Table Games Club, Masonic
Order, Shrine Club, Chapter, Knights of Pythias, Im-
proved Order of Odd Fellows, Young Women's Chris-
tion Association, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Woman's Club,
Woman's Christian Temperance Union, Eastern Star, Re-
beccas, American Legion, Gun Club, Country Club and
Realtor's Association. All welcome visiting members.
A modern system of large passenger busses makes its
headquarters at Clearwater, operating to and from Tampa,
St. Petersburg, Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Belleair, Lake-
land, Orlando and on across the State to all points on the
Florida East Coast.
We have attempted, by means of this booklet, to convey
to you the charms and opportunities of Clearwater "On the
Gulf," but it is impossible to photograph our sunshine, pure
salt and pine-laden air, or to even meagerly describe our
balmy breezes and the invigorating and health-giving
atmosphere. Won't you come and see for yourself that it's
"Springtime all the time in Clearwater?"
