Right off US 19, heading west on Tarpon Ave. in less than 1 mile you will soon step into a little Greek town called Tarpon Springs also known as “The Venice of the South”. This town was incorporated in 1887 and is the oldest city in Pinellas County. Tarpon Springs has plenty of parks, brick roads, delicious food, boutiques, antiques shops…
In general, it has it all that you can think of a quaint old town. Just the perfect scenery for a splendid and fulfilling day. Tarpon Springs’ unique attraction is the Sponge Docks which is at the heart of the city’s Greek Town. This area was settled by Greek Fishermen in the early twentieth century. The Sponge Docks is actually registered in the National Registry of Historic Places.
Tarpon Springs is also known as an art destination bust mostly known for its annual Epiphany Celebration in which young men dive in for a cross thrown in the Spring Bayou. As it is for me, I enjoy the antique shops and the fabulous food along the way. Special mention to Currents Restaurant for the amazing dining experience; Hella’s Cafe for its excellent coffee and delicious Greek pastries, and Rusty Bellies for Tarpon Springs’ freshest seafood and outside bar with live music. OPA!

This is for the locals that didn’t know that in Daytona the famous 23 miles of white sandy beaches with huge waves of the Atlantic crashing along the shoreline is THE place to surf boogie board.

They have spectacular hamburgers that are unique creations with eclectic combinations of ingredients, and fun, creative names as well. They have $5 burgers on Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., which is more than half off, as the regular prices are $12 - $13.50. The burgers are so huge and so delicious that even at the regular prices they are worth it. The Avenue does have other items in case you aren’t looking for a great burger. They have a few different chicken sandwiches, salads and snacks. There’s live music on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. It’s great to catch a game on one of The Avenue’s 21 TVs.
