There are plenty of great places to eat after a hard day in Tarpon Springs fishing and not just seafood either. Try Greek food at the Sponge Docks or try Currents which is a fantastic eatery with a great wine list as well.
You are on the coast of course so how about enjoying the beaches, rich unspoilt sands await you, you could even try casting off from the beaches one day so you can relax with your family while enjoying your Tarpon Springs fishing trip too.
Many of the beaches are protected nature reserves and so back on to woodland and countryside, which would otherwise be built up, this is one of the things people love about Tarpon Springs that you can really get away from it all. The nature reserves are worth exploring more too of course and teaming with wildlife areas such as Honeymoon Island are great for walking or you could take a boat out to Caladesi island. A nature tour by Suncruises will take you around these and other islands and inlets to make sure you see the best that the area has to offer and you may even get some fishing tips at the same time.
Honeymoon Island can actually be reached by a causeway, though coming in this way there is no way to avoid paying the entrance fee but you do get good facilities once you arrive as well as well marked trials to follow and good picnic areas too.
Your family may not like the idea at first but coming out with you on the water for a day’s fishing could be rewarding in itself with the chance to see Manatees and Dolphins all along the coast and especially around Chesapeake point.
If you want something a little less tranquil of course while on your Tarpon Springs fishing trip you should jump in the car and drive the short distances to central Florida and the amusements around Orlando, Daytona Beach and other destinations.
There are the theme parks of course with Disneyland and Universal Studios probably the best, with the wild rides in each park it will certainly be a chance of pace to sitting out on the water waiting for a bite.
Then at Daytona you have the raceway with regular races including blue riband events like the Daytona 500 Nascar race.
Sea World at Orlando as well might be of interest if you are in Tarpon Springs to fish though isn’t quite the same as seeing animals including turtles and dolphins such as Orca and Bottlenose dolphins in the wild.
Florida is a beautiful state whether at Tarpon Springs, in one of the cities, in the countryside or of course on the water and the problem you face is likely to be fitting everything in during your Tarpon Springs fishing holiday.
