Review of Clearwater, Florida

Horrible Depressed Town in a Tourist Mecca
Star Rating - 7/12/2017
Aside from the great Beach here, to live here is a living nightmare. Basically, Clearwater is a heavy tourist town with high price rentals and food for a peace of paradise.
Do not live here no matter no matter what age oncluding retirement. The expense to live hete which oncludes.stress, travel to job, livability, food, depressed city, crime, and job opportunities for family survival is dead last for me compared to other nearby towns. People here are rude, nasty, phony, no manners and businesses have a poor customer service. The town has incompetent management example tv, phone, mortgage. I would say 30% are good. 70% awful people. Beach access is expensive and overcrowded 10 months out of the year. If you come hear go to Honeymoon Island and the number 1 ranked Caladesi Island which you take a ten minute ferry to this beautiful beach from Honeymoon Island. Parking meters everywhere.
Do yourself a favor and go to Bradington, fl next town down from Pinellas County. Schools ate better and good on every point I mentioned above
Hotels are reasonable and mortgage rates are better than Pinellas County. Crooked Government in Pinellas County left owners left to dry. Just trying to jelp!
