Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach
Speaking of the Hyatt Regency, do yourself a favor and reserve a room there for next year's Uncorked. You'll be right on-site so you can saunter down onto the beach just as the line is forming at the entrance. And when you need a break, take the quick walk back to your room, which is outfitted with a full kitchen. There's also the Sandava Spa on the seventh floor, where you will find a menu full of organic treatments to get your body rejuvenated for another day exploring the food festival.
Plus, the hotel is right on the city's Beach Walk (which recently underwent $30 million in renovations), so you're right next to a plethora of shops and the town pier. Did I mention you are right across the street from Clearwater Marina and a 15 minute walk away from the aquarium, home of Winter, the famous tail-less dolphin who starred in the film Dolphin Tale?
If you missed this year's Uncorked, you better start planning for next year's event, because you're certainly not going to want to miss it!
