Just 30 miles northwest of Tampa, Tarpon Springs has the largest per capita Greek American population among USA destinations. Around 25% of over 29,000 Tarpon residents are of Greek descent. An abundance of excellent Greek restaurants, bakeries, fresh seafood, craft breweries, boutique shops, beach concerts and festivals makes Tarpon Springs a popular tourist draw – especially on weekends.
The Sponge Docks are also a great place to take a boat tour to nearby Anclote Key, for fishing, dolphin watching, or a small boat sunset cruise. This unique Florida Gulf Coast town offers a slice of the Mediterranean along Dodecanese Boulevard and Athens Street. Revitalized downtown Tarpon Springs is home to an additional wealth of excellent restaurants, a hip cocktail bar, wine bar and breweries among hip hangouts.
These are some of the best places to visit in Tarpon SPrings!
