Clearwater Beach is for sure the nicest beach around and it's only a 30 min drive from Tampa. There are a few bars right on the beach, like Frenchy's and Sheppards and a few others on the south part of Clearwater Beach. If you're looking for entertainment though, I wouldn't go to Busch Garden, I would take the hour and a half drive and go see Universal Studios Islands of Adventure, some pretty good rides there.

went to universal islands of adventure in 2010. But im pumped for some drinking on some patio bars in clearwater.
Is there any drag tracks near by that would have any events? or even a test and tune day. Went to orlando speed world last time down.

When I used to live down there between 1998-2003 I wasn't much into the car scene, so I dont know where the tracks are, but I'm sure there's one pretty close by. Also, being Canadian maybe you could go see a Lightning game, I'm sure you could find cheap tickets.
