Make a Splash Outdoor
The ocean offers residents and visitors alike some of the most thrilling outdoor activities available in Tarpon springs. Grab your scuba gear and go dive into a fantastic deep-water adventure. See fish, coral, and other amazing marine life as you travel through blue water. Take an underwater camera for some phenomenal pictures to share. Back on the surface of the water, take a relaxing cruise, and soak up the sun as you travel along the rhythmic waves. You may even spot some dolphins. If you want to try to catch your limit, go deep sea fishing, and test your skill with a line and reel.
The Spice of Life
Every Greek food imaginable is available in Tarpon springs thanks to its thriving, friendly Greek community. Have dinner with a view at Dimitri's On The Water. Its old world feel is the perfect complement to the delicious food, from the chickpeas to the leg of lamb. Greek food is not the only option, of course. Dine at Currents if you want the freshest seafood with an elegant atmosphere. Like a fine bottle of wine, Currents has improved with age. For something even more exotic, Jerk Center has Caribbean food extraordinaire. Oxtail and curried goat are just a hint of what you will find here.
Divine Beauty and Vis
The past comes to life in glorious architecture and artifacts in Tarpon Springs. St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral stands tall against a background of blue skies, resplendent with its vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows that glitter in the sunlight. Shrine of Saint Michael Taxiarchis is a tiny shrine built with love and devotion by the Tsalichis family decades ago. To find a different slice of local history, tour the Safford House Museum. The former home of Anson Safford, a champion of women’s rights and a true visionary of his time, retains much of its former beauty and charm through a careful restoration process.
