In case you need another reason to visit this little slice of paradise!


The gleaming sand and crystal waters of Clearwater Beach have done it again!

For the third time in four years, the Florida vacation destination has been named No. 1 in the United States by TripAdvisor's top 25 beach ranking. This is the second year in a row Clearwater Beach has taken the top spot on the annual Traveler's Choice list, which is based on visitor reviews from the past 12 months.

"Clearwater Beach continues to be one of the best beaches in the world, and it's special to have the millions who make up the TripAdvisor community reaffirm that it truly is the No. 1 beach in America for the second straight year," Leroy Bridges, Visit St. Pete/Clearwater's vice president of communications, told the Tampa Bay Times.

And that's not all, Clearwater Beach also ranked on TripAdvisor's global list, claiming the No. 6 on the travel site's 2019 roundup of the best beaches on the planet. Only one other U.S. beach made that list: Ka'anapali Beach in Hawaii, which ranked 14th.

Congrats, y'all!
