The community has retained the atmosphere and traditions brought to us by Greek sponge divers at the beginning of the century through sponge diving and the biggest Epiphany celebration in the United States. The uniqueness of the culture translates into the real estate as well making it a beautiful historic place to live. There are a wide variety of Tarpon Springs homes to choose from, and most properties are a mixture of new subdivisions and elegant aged manors. People have been drawn to Tarpon Springs because of the shops along Dodecanese Avenue in the Sponge Docks District. The Sponge Docks visitors can eat authentic Greek food at more than 20 restaurants, shop in more than 100 antique stores, board cruise boats for day-trips, casino cruises or fishing trips, or see some of the most interesting sea life at the Coral Sea Aquarium and take a tour through the sponge museum to learn the history of the sponge industry. This prosperous community of more than 20,000 residents has much to offer and makes purchasing a home in Tarpon Springs a worthwhile investment.
