Pinellas County is a great area to work in. Clearwater is a vacation spot in its own right, with plenty of fun things to do. Clearwater Beach is one of the nicer beaches in the Tampa Bay area, for example. The city is famous for being the home of Winter the Dolphin, who was featured in the movie Dolphin Tale alongside Harry Connick Jr., Morgan Freeman, and Ashley Judd. At 107,784 residents (according to a recent census), it’s large enough to be lively without becoming overwhelming.
