Local Area Attractions - Things to Do
When Greek immigrants first settled in the area, they found the waters off Tarpon Springs, FL to be rich with highly sought-after sponges. Now the area is the focal point of local Greek culture and dining featuring several fun Things to Do in Tarpon Springs and near Palm Harbor, Florida. Walk along colorful Dodecanese Boulevard, winding through the shops that smell of the unique nose cocktail of perfumed olive oil soaps, sea salt and Vera Bradley. There are boating and fishing excursions, shops, an aquarium and sponge diving exhibitions. And there are restaurants-- lots and lots of Greek restaurants. And you'll kick yourself later if you don't stop in at one of the bakeries there and take home a fresh pastry in a little white box. It's a perfect souvenir.
