Clearwater, Florida -- The Bay Area is known for its beautiful beaches. In the past, Siesta Beach, Caladesi Island and Fort De Soto Park have all been named "America's Best Beach" by Dr. Beach.
Patrick Pratico and his family, from London, Ontario, were recently visiting Clearwater Beach.
"The beaches are very clean, seem very safe to swim in," he said. "Just by looking around, the nature of the beach, I have no fear to swim in it."
