About the neighbourhood
Tarpon Springs is a unique tourist location on the west coast of Florida. Without large hotels or motels, the area remains unspoiled and retains its rich personality as the largest Greek community outside of Greece. Street festivals, Greek food, gift shops and music abound. Visitors will find great shopping, authentic foods and items from Greece, beaching, parks, charter boats and private boat rental, great fishing and more, in a more laid-back manner than busier places in Florida. History enthusiastics will enjoy the antique district and restored historical buildings, providing a venue for restaurants, a winery, art galleries and tavern on original red-bricked streets. Original Victorian homes line the many bayous around town, and much can be viewed by foot or on the Tarpon Trolley. ...
