Living in Clearwater

Clearwater is a city in Pinellas County, Florida. It is situated on the Gulf of Mexico, and Clearwater beach is regarded as one of the most beautiful in the state. The city is popular with tourists looking to avoid the mainstream holiday destinations in Florida. The city name "Clear Water" comes from the discovery of fresh water springs flowing near where the modern day City Hall building is located. Many other freshwater springs are present around the bay and harbor area, which attract a diverse range of wildlife. There are a number of wildlife reserves, and one of the largest wild bird sanctuaries in the country. So as you can see, there is plenty to discover for expats living in Clearwater.

Working in Clearwater

Most of the early settlers in Clearwater were farmers, who came to the area in the mid-1800s, to take up the offer of the Federal Armed Occupation Act. In World War II, the area became an important training base for United States troops, prior to their deployment to the Pacific and Europe. Nowadays, some of the biggest employers in Clearwater include the Morton Plant Hospital, and the city is also home to offices of two major Fortune 500 companies. Tech Data Corporation is a technology product wholesaler, with its Headquarters in Clearwater, and Honeywell International, while headquartered in New Jersey, also has a large base in the city. Ranked 119th and 77th respectively on the Fortune 500, these two companies not only produce or sell a wide range of consumer and commercial products, but also generate job opportunities for both locals and expatriates in Clearwater.
