DolphinTaleLiving in WaterGrass lets you enjoy the Florida sun in a beautiful, fun family atmosphere. And the beauty of the area, including the amazing wildlife offered by living near the gulf coast, has boosted the neighboring community of Clearwater into the scene of a Hollywood motion picture, Dolphin Tale, being released this month!

From the studio and producers who brought you The Blind Side, a touching new  movie is coming to you and your family. Based on a true story, Dolphin Tale is a story of the friendship between a boy and a dolphin whose tail was lost in a crab trap. The movie was filmed last fall in Pinellas County, mostly at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

The movie, which opens September 23, 2011, stars Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Harry Connick Jr., and Kris Kristofferson. The movie is a great family film rated PG.

Winter, the dolphin (who plays herself in the movie), was rescued by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and still lives there today. Last year nearly 200,000 people came to visit Winter and you can too! Clearwater Marine Aquarium is located at 249 Windward Passage, Clearwater, FL 33767. It’s not often that you and your kids get the opportunity to meet a movie star! Clearwater is only an hour and fifteen minutes away, so take the kids and let them meet Winter after seeing the amazing movie. Learn more about the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
