Tarpon Springs, Florida
One of my favorite places in the entire world is Tarpon Springs, Florida. In addition to being on the beautiful, sunny West Coast of Florida, the community has a strong Greek influence. Walk down the sponge docks along Dodecanese Blvd., and you'll be hard pressed to miss the strains of Greek music and shouts of "Opa!" from the restaurants and shops.
One of the unique things you'll find in many of the shops is a vast selection of natural sponges harvested in the Gulf of Mexico.
