Thinking of travelling to either clearwater beach or st pete beach. first which is better for a family with children 14 and 12 looking not to drive to much. Also I no it will be hot in august but what about the rain will it be a washout many thanks for any help.
In August, it'll rain a fair amount.
Both Clearwater and St Pete beach are fairly commercialized. The advantage is that you wouldn't need to drive much to find tourist attractions. Clearwater beach will have a younger crowd, while St Pete Beach might be a little more tourist-friendly. I work at a resort in Indian Rocks Beach, which is between Clearwater and St Pete Beach. It's much less commercialized here and very family friendly.
