Tarpon Springs, Florida little note for later " a tourist destination. It is good for an day of sightseeing. They have sponge docks, a neat little main street area for tourists, selling sponges. And it was settled by Greek immigrants. So you have those great Greek restaurants and bakeries.It also has a nice little beach area with shelling excursions and a river to oceanfront ride. The winter cold water months are the prime time for manatees. You might want to check with the tour operator"
