Great Day Trip for All Ages 8/19/2007

Great area for all ages. An authentic Greek village founded by sponge divers from Greece. Enjoy a scenic boatride on the Anclotte River or hand-feed sharks and rays at the Tarpon Aquarium. The food is fantastic, of course, and you get tons of food for very little money. Recommend Plaka's Restaurant where the gyro meat is the only place home made on the premises....fantastic. Plenty of shopping; everything from upscale clothing boutiques to hand-made soaps to imported linens to fabulous fudge. And you can't leave without an authentic, from-the-sea sponge....great for every use. Plan to make it a day. You won't be sorry. Pros: Food, Shopping, People, Activities Cons: Parking Limited, but do-able more

great atmosphere... great food... 2/12/2006

A wonderful little place to spend about a half a day. Very nice local folks. Gives you the feeling of being in a little Greek village. Authentic food that is priced right. Everyone is friendly. Prices in the shops is just what you would expect them to be... a bit pricey but not too expensive to enjoy. You can park for free a couple of blocks away but for a small fee you can park right in the heart of all the action. I would highly reccommend it for anyone. Pros: Food, Atmosphere more

User review by tarpon 2/8/2006

As you turn West on Dodecanese (turn East go two blocks and park free) you are greeted by No Parking/Tow Zone signs and a sea of attended parking lots. You can pay to go for a boat ride, pay to see how sponges are harvested, pay to see an aquarium or pay to ride the trolley (a circuitous route back to the parking lots. The shops are a value and the restaurants are good.The atmosphere - A carnival. Andy Rooney would love it it! Do not bring your Entertainment Book. The coupons are not valid from 12/15 to 4/30 Pros: Shops, Food Cons: Parking, Towing more

It's all Greek to me 8/6/2002

What a nice touristy area to visit. Great food, good shops, even a casino cruise. The only disadvantage is to get there. US19 has got to be the worst highway in Florida. If anyone knows an easier way to get there from St Pete and tampa, please let us know!!! Pros: Food, Shops Cons: US19 !!!! more

Ethnic and Interesting 7/23/2002

Who would have thought one could seek actually sponge harvesting near a mid-size US city? Friendly people, good scenery, very interesting, good food nearby. more
