St. Pete/Clearwater, FL (July 5, 2013) - While on location in the St. Pete/Clearwater area last week filming several segments for his upcoming PBS show, The Travel Detective, renowned travel guru Peter Greenberg discovered the perfect getaway for holiday beach goers: Clearwater Beach, which he subsequently named to the top of his list of "Best Beaches in the U.S." on CBS News This Morning last Saturday.

Greenberg, who is CBS's full-time Travel Editor, touted Clearwater Beach on the network's nationally aired morning show, noting in particular the "white, powdery sand," that's "so fine it doesn't burn your feet."

"That sounds like a bad brochure, but it really is true," he joked, before touching on the area's other notable assets---including great fishing, family-friendliness and endless sunshine.

Greenberg's nod to Clearwater Beach joins a long list of area accolades, including Clearwater being voted "Florida's Best Beach Town" by USA Today readers, St. Pete Beach being named "#1 Beach in the U.S." by TripAdvisor and Parents magazine naming Fort De Soto "America's Best Family Beach."
