Oopah! In the mood for a little calamari? How about dolmades or souvlaki? Get in a “Greek” frame of mind and find your next apartment rental in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
During the 1880s, Greek immigrants arrived to work as divers to harvest sponges. The Greek community continued to grow, and today Tarpon Springs has the largest Greek population in the United States. It’s a little Greek village on the west coast of Florida, with Greek restaurants, markets, and bakeries.
The Epiphany Celebration takes place every January 6. A blessing of the boats and the water takes place, then a wooden cross is tossed into the city’s Spring Bayou. Young men swim out after the cross and the one who retrieves it is blessed for the year.
Located 27 miles northeast of Tama along some of the most beautiful stretch of beaches on the coast, Tarpon Springs is a unique apartment rental location.
