Vacation Similar to Fort Myers Beach Times Square Area

We have vacationed many years in Fort Myers beach and we were once told there is an area north of Fort Myers in the Gulf that is still busy like times square (We like the action- even though we are middle age) with hotels/restaurants all lined up on the beach so you can stroll from one to another without having to drive. Does anyone know of any beach areas in the SW Gulf like this? Thank you!

Clearwater comes to mind first. Perhaps St. Pete and Siesta Key - I haven't spent much time at those but they are similar in size to Ft. Myers Beach.

Clearwater was the first thing that came to my mind too. Or possibly Anna Maria Island? Also maybe Madeira Beach.

Def Clearwater. Some areas of St Pete beach and treasure island.

And if you would like a downsized, low rise and lower scale version, look at Anna Maria.
