A day trip to Tarpon Springs, known as the sponge capital of the world, is a must for anyone who stays at Rainbow Village RV Resort. Forty miles away, the town is well worth the drive to explore the charming downtown area with its brick streets and buildings dating back to the late 1800s.
Stroll along with waterfront to see the sponge docks, and then browse in the antique stores, art galleries and specialty shops. Visit St. St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral and parks, as well as the sponge museum called Spongeorama and the aquarium.
As Tarpon Springs has the highest proportion of Greek Americans of any city in the U.S., you can expect to get authentic Greek food in restaurants, bakeries and markets. Hellas Restaurant is the top-rated Greek eatery, but you’ll also find others that are highly rated such as Mykonos, Dimitri’s on the Water and Mr. Souvlaki. Before leaving town, stop at Hellas Bakery or National Bakery to grab some baklava, spanakopita or other delectables. Also, don’t miss Agora Food Market, a grocery store that carries Greek olives, cheeses, honey and more.
