Places of interest to nature-lovers are Clearwater Beach and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to orphaned marine animals like otters, turtles and bottle-nosed dolphins. The huge Moccasin Lake Nature Park houses a plethora of wildlife, offers scenic trails for hikers, and is involved in taking care of injured animals as well as educating people in environmental studies. The Clearwater beach offers spectacular sunsets, expanses of white sand, unparalleled water sports including dolphin watching, and jet-skiing. It has been selected multiple times for the ‘Best Beach’ in the United States award. Pier 60 is famous for its long fishing pier, playground, and restaurants.

Summers here are warm and humid with frequent lightning and thunderstorms whereas winters are mild. Clearwater lies in the high-risk hurricane zone and experiences tornadoes too. If you own a home in Clearwater, then the chances of destruction by heavy rain, strong winds, and floods can cause you heart-burn, so the right thing to do is to invest in a good insurance policy. However, be aware of the type of coverage and other clauses that are a part of your policy document. Flood insurance is provided by the National Flood Insurance Program as a separate policy, however now some private insurers have been permitted to offer it too.
The essential criteria when opting for an insurance policy should be the ease of receiving a settlement when you need it the most, without any complications.
