Clearwater, FL corporate housing clients in town on business might appreciate some information about the city’s business life. Clearwater is a tourism destination and a year round stream of tourists form part of the city's economic engine. This engine is driven by the various hospitality, dining and entertainment sectors that form the basis of the tourism industry. In addition to that, the real estate and construction industries are also returning to becoming top earners and contributors to the economy.

The main driver, aside from tourism, is the migration patterns of the rest of the country and the economic ability for those who plan to move here. As the economy improves and the population ages, there is a significant pull to Clearwater specifically, and Florida in general.

Clearwater was originally home to native tribes including the Tocobaga and was cherished for its clear, gurgling waters of the spring that flowed into the bay. The spring no longer exists. The springs gave rise to the area being referred to as Clear Water Harbor until the name changed to Clearwater Harbor in 1895 and finally to just Clearwater in 1906.
The area traces European history to as far back as Narvaez's arrival in 1528. De Soto only made it to Tampa Bay 11 years later. The Federal Occupation Act of 1842 gave settlers 160 acres of land to whoever wished to cultivate is. James Stevens and Samuel Stevenson were the first settlers that benefited from this law.
Clearwater was incorporated in 1915 and a library was built a year later. The library was the result of a grant given by Andrew Carnegie. Clearwater began to take prominence as a tourist destination in the early 20th century after basic infrastructure and conveniences sprang up.
