There are many side streets and outlying areas in Tarpon Springs that have wonderful attractions, as well! Check out these off-the-beaten-path gems. The Alternate 19 corridor between Klosterman Road and Dodecanese Blvd. is a treasure trove of eclectic mom and pop shops selling architectural salvage, handmade art & clothing, garden art, vintage relics, and furniture. There are more mom and pop unique shops in a one square mile area than any other town in the county. Bring your family and friends and take a day to explore Tarpon Springs fresh seafood restaurants, eclectic boutiques, lively pubs, breweries with tastings, the Sponge Docks area (a working seaport and shopping district) and the Historic Downtown District.
