Shopping is the principle reason why many people come to Clematis Street. As you walk down the thoroughfare you will come across small boutiques, national brands and galleries. Browse for clothes, furniture, high street fashions and original works of art. Some of the buildings hail from the early 20th century and feature the year they were built on their façades.

At the east end of the street is a waterfront park. Relax by its fountain and on the spacious lawn. Take a stroll down one of the three public piers that jut out over the water. From the seating areas, you can enjoy fabulous views of the downtown skyline.
Once the sun has gone down, Clematis Street turns into something of a party destination with its bars and nightclubs. Let your hair down every Thursday at Clematis by Night which features a free concert at Centennial Square, food vendors and children’s activities.
For more live music, attend the family-friendly free concert series on the third Sunday of every month. Between December and April it is presented on the Palm Stage and between May and November it is hosted by the Meyer Amphitheatre.
