Tarpon Springs is a fun town to visit. You will see boats coming in with sponges that they collected. Around the dock area there are fun shops and many Greek Restaurants. You can get a full meal or just sample some of their delicious desserts.

A nice place to spend the day. Lots of little shops. Plenty of restaurants. An aquarium for the kids. Just nice to sit and watch the boats. Can take a sponge boat cruise but don't know how authentic. Lots of parking.

A refreshing change of pace from the rest of Florida. This sponge fishing village is a fun place to visit. I especially love the Sponge-arama with a film and decaying dioramas of sponge fishing.
