Sponge Docks, Tarpon Springs, FL

The sponge diving industry built a thriving Greek community in Tarpon Springs, FL begining in the 1880s. While the demand for natural sponges peaked in the 1930s, you can still visit the busy sponge docks, which are surrounded by authentic Greek restaurants and shops. In many stores you can also pick up some blue glass eye charms that ward off the evil eye and are said to bring good luck!
