Do the Stingray Shuffle!

Do the stingray shuffle while at the beach this summerThe City of Clearwater would like to remind you to do the Stingray Shuffle. The peak of stingray season May through October, so when visiting the beach, please be aware that stingrays might be in the water. To make sure you don’t accidentally step on one and get stung, shuffle your feet, instead of walking through the water. This causes a disturbance in the sand that causes the stingrays to move away.

Demolition of a Section of the Old Belleair Bridge Took Place on July 15th - Photo by Wayne CathelA section of the old Belleair Bridge was demolished on July 15th as construction continued into the next phase on the newer, bigger and better Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge.

The Belleair Beach Causeway Bridge connects the Pinellas County Mainland Peninsula to the Barrier Islands, from Belleair Bluffs to Sand Key and Belleair Shore. The former structure was built in 1950, with an expected life span of fifty years. In the 21st century, the design had become obsolete and was too expensive to maintain so a new bridge was built.
