Arts and Culture
Florida is full of nature to admire and a mix of culture to appreciate. Did you know that Tarpon Springs is home to one of the biggest Greek communities in Florida? Yes, this is because when the sponge diving business was booming, spongers from Greece were hired to do the job. So, to learn more about the history of this city you can visit the historic district, take some cultural classes and workshops, or visit the Safford House Museum.
