St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral

St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral was founded in 1905 and is the first and original Greek Orthodox Christian parish of the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. The present Cathedral was completed during WWII, in 1943. Much of the interior marble, including the iconostasis (icon screen), is from the Greek pavilion of the 1939 World's Fair in New York City. The Cathedral contains actual relics of St. Nicholas of Myra and is a point of pilgrimage for those who seek the intercessions of this most beloved of Christian saints. The Cathedral tower is the tallest architectural structure in Tarpon Springs and serves as the heart of the downtown and city. In the plaza to the north of the Cathedral is the famous "Cross Diver" statue which captures the pinnacle of the annual Epiphany Day (January 6) celebration for which the St. Nicholas Cathedral parish is known the world over. At the base of the statue are the names of young men - Orthodox Christian and non-Orthodox Christian - who made the supreme sacrifice during World War II.

We have visited this Cathedral every time we visit Tarpon Springs, usually at least one time each year. We have been there when there hasn't been a service, so we have walked around looking at all the hand carved pieces and enjoyed the architecture. It is located just before you enter the busy area of Tarpon Springs, where all the shops and restaurants are located.

We were staying at Hickory Point RV Park and went here several times during our stay to walk. It is a small park and each lap was less than a mile, but the views were nice and there was very little traffic.

Painting with a Twist

Reviewed By jennifer g - Trinity, Florida

I have visited PWAT several times and each time has been awesome. You can plan an event like a Birthday and celebrate during an open class or reserve a room just for your group. The instructors are all very helpful and friendly. You can bring in food drinks including wine and beer and they provide the good music and fun while you paint. Its true that you dont have to be a good painter to have a great time.

This is a very lovely place to visit! 5 dollar parking for all day. Plenty of kite surfers doing their thing, beach walkers to watch, but overall very quiet until sunset time. At sunset this is the perfect place to take a Spring Break picture so all your friends at home will be jealous! The drive to the park is beautiful but watch your speed. The breeze is heavenly! Must return here again!

Remember to bring bug spray before taking the walk! Great views of the gulf along the boardwalk. The sand is like walking on a beach; so bring old walking shoes. $2 fee to park. Does have a look out tower for great views; so bring your camera!

We have been out to Anclote Key many times. It is a great place to visit and explore.
You can visit the lighthouse, fish from the beach, or just hang out at the beach with the family. You can take the family and everyone will have nice time.
