Hulk Hogan – A Huge Clearwater Beach Celebrity


Clearwater Beach Hulk Hogan

When it comes to celebrities in the Clearwater Beach area, I don’t know if they get bigger than Hulk Hogan! The professional wrestler, movie actor, TV star, and business owner has lived in the Tampa Bay area for the majority of his life.

Terry Eugene Bollea, also known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, has been a big name in the Clearwater Beach area for a long time. He has had several houses in the Clearwater and Clearwater Beach area over the years and could frequently be seen walking the beach, cruising around the island on one of his boats, or driving around town in his cars or trucks. If you’re driving around Clearwater Beach hoping to see him now, you won’t have to be checking each car and truck that goes by… just head towards the corner of Mandalay Avenue and Baymont Street and you’ll find him… or at least a statue of him.

Right at the corner of Mandalay and Baymont, you’ll find Hogan’s Hangout, his own restaurant, and bar. Hogan’s Hangout is open every day from 7 AM to 2 AM. Stop in anytime for some great breakfast, lunch, dinner, or late-night food and drinks. Even if you’re not hungry stop in for some live music, cold drinks, or even the Hulk’s own beer – Hogan’s Hangout Pilsner and a chance to meet Hulk Hogan who can frequently be found there.

Hogan's Hangout Pilsner

From Hogan’s Hangout take a very short walk south on Mandalay, and in less than a block, you’ll find Hogan’s Beach Shop. It’s easy to stop with a statue of Hulk Hogan out front. Inside the shop, you’ll find all the Hulk Hogan merchandise and souvenirs you can imagine.

Clearwater Beach is known for its soft white sand and beautiful sunsets, but it’s full of all kinds of fun, BROTHER!

Is Clearwater Beach Walkable?

, ,

Is Clearwater Beach Walkable? - Hogan's Hangout

Is Clearwater Beach Walkable? YES! Clearwater Beach is a very walkable beach town with everything you need close by.

When visiting Clearwater Beach you’ll have a variety of options on where to stay that will play a role in how close everything is to you, but no matter where you stay, the island is walkable! When mentioning distances in this article, I’ll be using The Villas of Clearwater Beach and Surfside Condos as the reference point. Both of these fantastic vacation rentals are beachfront condominiums located on North Clearwater Beach. This area of the beach is a quiet, family-friendly area of Clearwater Beach.

Beach Access

You’ll find beach access points almost everywhere on Clearwater Beach. When staying at the condos rented from B&W Management, you’ll have beachfront views and are steps away from touching the soft white sand.

If you’re not staying in a beachfront condo or hotel, don’t worry, the beach is still within walking distance! The most common places to stay are within 3 to 4 (small) blocks from the beach. If you’re staying on south Clearwater Beach in places like Shephard’s Beach Resort, Holiday Inn, or Hampton Inn and Suites; you will have a small beach area nearby, but you’ll have to walk a bit further to get to the public beach area. The public beach is still very walkable at roughly a quarter-mile.


There are delicious restaurants everywhere on Clearwater Beach! Here are some popular restaurants on Clearwater Beach and their walking distance from The Villas of Clearwater Beach. By no means are these the only restaurants around; there are many, many more!


Enjoy a night out on Clearwater Beach! Below are some of the bars located on Clearwater Beach, but there are many more!


You’ll find all kinds of wonderful storefronts to shop at on Clearwater Beach. Many of these storefronts are located on Mandalay Avenue. Another great shopping experience is the popup shops located on Pier 60 every day for the Clearwater Beach sunset festival! You can combine both and walk from Surfside Condos and The Villas of Clearwater Beach down Mandalay Avenue to Pier 60. This walk is only a mile long and will take you past all kinds of storefronts as you head to Pier 60 to enjoy a beautiful sunset, popup shops, live music, and more!


The number one Clearwater Beach activity is the beach, and that is only steps away! But you might be interested in doing a little more. Here are some other Clearwater Beach Activities and how they are all within a walkable distance.

  • Paddleboarding / Kayaking: You can rent Paddleboard and kayaks from Clearwater Beach Paddleboard Co. and they’ll bring them to you on the beach for lessons! The shop is a short walk away, but you won’t have to worry about carrying the boards and kayaks back to the beach!
  • Jetski Rentals: You can rent jetskis on the beach! Just walk south towards Pier 60 and you’ll come across the rental company directly on the beach before you reach Pier 60 – roughly a half-mile away on the beach. You can also rent jetskis from the Clearwater Marina which is only a mile away.
  • Parasailing: Parasailing may be available from the jetski rental place on the beach (roughly a half-mile away), or you can find parasailing options at The Clearwater Marina as well.
  • Fishing: Enjoy fishing from the end of Pier 60, 1 mile away or fishing tours are available at The Clearwater Marina, also a mile away.
  • Dolphin Tours: Many different dolphin tour excursions are available at The Clearwater Beach Marina.
  • Sailing: Enjoy sailing cruises from the Clearwater Beach Marina as well!
  • Walk to Caladesi Island State Park: Walking to Caladesi Island State Park is possible! It’s a longer walk at roughly 4.5 miles to the far end of Caladesi Island, but it’s very beautiful and fully on the beach! Learn more about Walking from Clearwater Beach to Caladesi Island!

While you’ll see the Frenchy’s name across several restaurants, shops, fishing fleets, and even a hotel in the Clearwater Beach area – Frenchy’s Original Cafe is where it all started back in 1981! Frenchy’s Cafe is known for its delicious Grouper Sandwich! Add some Buffalo Shrimp, and you’ll be eating my favorite Clearwater Beach meal! The small cafe can fill up very quickly, but you can get the food to go or get it delivered by ordering through DoorDash!

Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar

10 Bay Esplanade, Clearwater Beach, FL 33767 | 727-446-2642

Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar sits right on the beach with beautiful sunset views, live music, and delicious food and drinks! That said, it can be busy with long wait times for tables. That said, they have a huge kitchen and can have to go orders ready to pick up very quickly! Call in an order and take it back to your beachfront condo! You’ll have delicious food and a private sunset view!

If seafood isn’t for you, check out their St. Louis BBQ Smoked Ribs! I’m a harsh judge for ribs (and I live in St. Louis), and I still highly recommend these!

Cooters Restaurant & Bar

423 Poinsettia Ave, Clearwater Beach, FL 33767 | 727-462-2668

A great sports-themed bar/restaurant with great happy hour specials! Cooters is a place that I would usually recommend going to for all you can eat crab legs on Monday and Tuesday or all you can eat Fish and Chips on Wednesday every week! But there’s so much more on Cooters delicious menu! They have amazing Hot Crabby Shrimp Dip, She Crab Soup, and fantastic hot wings!

Their hot wings are so good that I’ve been known to complicate a take our dinner by adding multiple stops – Cooters hot wings to go with some local pizza! Speaking of pizza…

Clearwater Beach in One Day

There’s so much to do when visiting Clearwater Beach that you can easily stay for a week or even longer. But, if all you have is a single day, here’s how to maximize your time on Clearwater Beach, Florida!

Morning in Clearwater Beach

If you’re visiting Clearwater Beach for a single day, the first thing you’ll need to figure out is how to get there and where to park when you do! You can avoid the crowded parking and frequent traffic jams headed to the island by parking in Downtown Clearwater and taking the Clearwater Ferry! Keep up with their routes and schedules on their website or the app (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store).

Taking the Clearwater Ferry not only helps you avoid traffic and parking issues and gives you an opportunity to squeeze a fun boat ride in for your day in Clearwater Beach. I suggest taking the Purple Line leaving from Downtown Clearwater and exiting at North Beach.

If you arrive in North Clearwater Beach in the morning and need breakfast, there are some great places nearby! Within a few blocks, you’ll be able to find Clear Sky Cafe (with a Bloody Mary bar on the weekends), Another Broken Egg Cafe, and Beach Fire Beach Bar & Grille!

After Breakfast, head out to the beach! You’re only steps away from the soft white sand that Clearwater Beach is known for. If you took the Clearwater Ferry to North Beach, you’re in a great area! North Beach is less crowded than South Beach and still has many great restaurants and shops nearby!

When finding a spot on North Beach, look between Sandpearl Resort and Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar. This area is right next to the breakfast locations mentioned before, a short walk to many stores and great restaurants, and has Clearwater Beach Lifeguards in the area. Being next to the Lifeguards will make it easy to keep an eye on any changing weather conditions or other things to keep an eye on. The Lifeguard stations will be flying flags that mark the conditions on the beach and in the Gulf of Mexico.

Afternoon in Clearwater Beach

After hanging out on the beach for a few hours, you may be interested in some lunch. Keep the great views going and grab lunch right on the beach at Frenchy’s Rockaway Grill or Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar. If you’re looking for a break from the sun and maybe even some air conditioning, you can grab a delicious Grouper Sandwich at Frenchy’s Original Cafe or head down to Jimmy Hula’s only blocks away!

After lunch, you can stop in at some of the nearby storefronts for a little bit of retail therapy, or even just to pick up some extra sunscreen or beach toys! You can find some great stores nearby like Surf Style, Freaky Tiki Surf Shack, Hulk Hogan’s Beach Shop or just a CVS to pick up an item you’re missing.

After lunch and a quick shopping trip, it’s time to enjoy more of the warm sun! Head back to the beach and enjoy more time in the ocean! If you’re nervous about swimming in the Gulf of Mexico you can also stop by the Clearwater Beach Community Pool that features a 6 lane Junior Olympic size swimming pool and an area for kids with a water slide shaped like a frog, squirting water jets, a mushroom-shaped waterfall and more! In addition to the pool you can also find tennis, basketball and pickleball courts!

Evening in Clearwater Beach

After a wonderful afternoon at the beach, pool or playing on the courts; it’s time to start thinking about some sunset fun!

The order of your evening plans may change based on what time of year it is and what time sunset is. During the summer, sunset is later in the day and may one to grab dinner first. During the winter, the sunset is quite a bit earlier and you’ll most likely want to grab dinner after seeing the sunset.

One of the best places to watch a Clearwater Beach sunset is at Pier 60’s Daily Sunset Festival! In addition to a beautiful sunset; Pier 60 offers a great area for kids to play, shopping from local artists and crafters directly on the pier and some great shows by street performers.

The daily sunset festival starts 2 hours before sunset and ends 2 hours after sunset. This timing allows you to choose the best time to eat dinner either before or after the beautiful Clearwater Beach sunset! Pier 60 is located right in the center of Clearwater Beach and has many restaurants nearby including The Bait House Tackle & Tavern located in the Clearwater Beach Marina for some great outdoor dining!

Nearby Dinner Suggestions

  • The Bait House Tackle & Tavern
  • Marina Cantina
  • Crabby’s Dockside
  • Poke Havana
  • Badfins Food + Brew
  • Ocean Hai
  • Jimmy’s Crows Nest (appetizers and drinks)

Stick around the Pier 60 area after dinner and sunset for a free outdoor movie! Enjoy a free movie under the stars at Pier 60’s Sunset Cinema every Friday and Saturday night! View the schedule of what’s showing here.

Depending on the time you can grab one of the last Clearwater Ferry rides from The Clearwater Beach Marina (located across the street from Pier 60) back to Downtown Clearwater or you get back to your car by taking a short taxi, Uber or Lyft.

While you can pack a lot of fun into a single Clearwater Beach in one day trip, you’ll still be missing a ton of fun things to do! Despite being a small island, Clearwater Beach has so much to offer that you could easily spend a full week and even longer here and not see everything. If you need more time in Clearwater Beach, come stay in our beachfront condos at The Villas of Clearwater Beach or Surfside Condominiums. We offer large luxurious condos with private beachfront balconies, full kitchens, multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, swimming pools and more!
