Historic and serene, the city of Tarpon Springs is a small-town just outside the hustle and bustle of Tampa. Steeped with Mediterranean culture brought by the Greek sponge divers, the area offers rich cuisine and a unique style all its own. Strolling down the main street is a treat for the senses with the smell of genuine Greek cuisine wafting in the air, the colorful artwork of local artisans and the lively street entertainment. Take your time and peruse the shops at the Sponge Docks, where you can watch a live sponge diving exhibition. Don’;t forget to stop in one of the Greek bakeries, where you can get some of the best baklava in the area! On your way back to the hotel, stop by Ballyhoos for a relaxed dining experience on their outdoor deck. Tarpon Springs is truly a small town gem, but close enough to the metropolitan city of Tampa that you won’;t get bored!
