Limo Service in Clearwater and Countryside

Historic Clearwater and Bustling Countryside, Pinellas County FL

About Clearwater and Countryside

Incorporated in 1891, Clearwater is west of Tampa, northwest of St. Petersburg and was originally part of Hillsborough County. Before the first road was built in 1849 joining the two cities, it was an entire day’s excursion traveling to and from Tampa. It is the smallest city in the tri-city area (Tampa, St Pete and Clearwater). The Stevens and McMullan families were among the first to settle in the area.

Before the turn of the 20th century, population growth still only produced fewer than 500 residents. But there was such a thing as snowbirds even back then when it expanded in the winter months to approximately 1,000. During WWII Clearwater was used as a major training ground for troops to be deployed overseas.

Countryside Mall, Day out Shopping – Limo Service

As Clearwater’s population continued to grow over time, geographical boundaries of residential subdivisions also expanded. Some expanded much faster and grew larger than others. Countryside is one of those subdivisions whose growth, current geographic size and population could very well make it a city unto itself, but is still technically a subdivision. Far from being exclusively a residential neighborhood it once was, Countryside is commercially zoned and has been for quite some time. The Westfield Countryside Mall provides retail stores and shops that will allow you to shop till you drop. The Countryside branch library is part of the Clearwater Public Library System and teems with literary resources and programs from astronomy to pre-school enrichment. Logistically, most of Countryside is situated east of US 19. However there is a section west of the highway.

Clearwater and Countryside is our backyard. No one knows the city better than CTS. If you’re looking for limousine service in and around Clearwater and Countryside or to the Tampa Airport we have you covered.

Limo Service to Coachman Park

Coachman Park (4 stars)

Clearwater, FL 33756

In a word, “Exceptional.” A very nice park for kicking back alone or spending time with family and friends. You can get lost in larger parks, but Coachman’s relatively small size makes it perfect for personalized events and keeping an eye on the kids. Convenient location. Great Disc Golf course on Northeast side. Frequently used as the setting for live music concerts. This is the venue for the highly acclaimed Clearwater Jazz Festival.

It was recently renovated to add the equestrian areas and a new crushed-shell trail that runs about 1.2 miles.
