Tarpon Springs Is Great
Tarpon Springs is a colorful city with a rich history. It is a destination for tourists and a great place to live. It is fantastic place to go and kick around and have lunch and enjoy the atmosphere of true fishing town.
The first thing you think about when you hear the name Tarpon Springs is the Sponge Docks and the Greek community. Greeks began to move into the community in the 1880′s when they were hired as divers for the growing sponge industry. Now, Tarpon Springs has the largest percentage of Greek residents of any city in the US. The total population of Tarpon Springs is around 21,000 at the 2000 census. There are large populations of Greeks in some of the other metropolitan areas of the USA, such as New York and Chicago, to name just two.
Sponge harvesting was once a thriving industry in Tarpon Springs, generating millions of dollars annually until 1947 when a red tide algae bloom killed the sponge fields. The sponge harvesting industry was all but ruined. After the devastating red tide algae bloom, most of the fishing industry converted to shrimping, and the sponge warehouses converted to tourist shops. Tarpon Springs changed into the charming tourist town that we know and love today.
Today, Tarpon Springs remains a thriving tourist town and still has a small commercial fishing fleet. However, most of the marine activity involves pleasure boats and charter fishing trips. Onshore, excellent Greek restaurants and exotic shops dot the Sponge Dock District. Tarpon Springs retains the character of its roots in the Greek community. Its character has not been papered over with high-rise hotels and chain restaurants. It still retains its great local identity.
Tarpon Springs has a rich tradition and history and if you spend some time there you will get to know the many unique elements that make it special.
