Located in west-central Florida and the seat of Pinellas County, Clearwater Harbor is part of the Intercoastal Waterway and is situated west of Tampa. Clearwater, Tampa, and St. Petersburg form part of the core of Florida's largest metropolitan area. When Fort Harrison was established along the coastal area, it was then that settlers started to arrive after the federal act making the land grants were passed. The city started and developed as a fishing village and farming area and was then called Clear Water Harbor. And after the arrival of the Orange Belt Railroad, tourism was then developed, and after the end of World War II, the urban and industrial expansion started. Clearwater is connected to Clearwater Beach, which is a white-sand key.
