Courtney Campbell Causeway
A Florida scenic highway, the iconic Courtney
Campbell Causeway crosses Old Tampa Bay
connecting Tampa with Clearwater. Alongside
the causeway, the 9.5-mile Courtney
Campbell Bike Trail welcomes cyclists,
joggers, walkers and in-line skaters. At the
western end of the Causeway as you enter
Clearwater, a small stretch of beach attracts
die hard beach fans seeking a bit of solace
from the more crowded beaches in the area.
An easy spot to get to by bike, the Courtney
Campbell Causeway Beach provides a place
among the palm trees to catch a few rays,
wade into the warm waters and soak in the
surrounding views of the bay.
