ClearwaterIt’s that time of year—people’s thoughts are moving toward Spring and Summer, and possible getaways that come along with the consistent warmer weather. If you are looking for opportunities for just a weekend getaway, or even a way to enjoy a “staycation,” you have a lot of opportunities when you live at WaterGrass. WaterGrass is within one hour of several beautiful beaches, including 3 of the country’s top beaches.

The beaches offer opportunities for sun-bathing as well as water sports like sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and snorkeling. Evening walks along the beach offer opportunities for dolphin-watching and spectacular sunsets. Several beaches have great picnicking, shopping and restaurants.
