If your an out of towner, you need to get to St. Nickolas Greek Orthodox church. It has been a place of worship even when i moved into town back in the 1970's . You need to see it. Don't miss out. Jesus loves Us.

This was a beautiful and ornate church that is modestly sized. We were up from Cape Coral for a day trip and decided to stop here. We weren’t disappointed.

This lovely church is part of the Tarpon skyline (if you call it that). The building is a strong edifice of fatih and is always busy with weddings and services, especially during the holy days.

The inside architecture with its colorful ceiling and walls was breathtaking. The alters in the front were beautiful. Their use of the color blue reminded me of being in Mykonos, Greece.
