I have taken so many family members and friends to visit the sponge capital of the world and Greek center of Florida, Tarpon Springs. Located in northern Pinellas County on the gulf, the sponge docks area of the city is full of great Greek food, darling shops with sponges, soaps and other collectibles, dolphin sight seeing boat rides, a cute aquarium for families with young children, an exquisite Greek Orthodox Church and more. It’s fun for all ages and we never tire of our visits there!

This place is beautiful, peaceful and has numerous habitats with well marked hiking trails that brings the whole experience of nature to you. There are forested wetlands, pine flatwoods, oak groves and a Cypress swamp at least in the summer rainy months that actually has a current of flowing water towards Lake Tarpon. We have seen Alligators in this swamp before, but not this time. There is about 10 miles of well marked looping trails that you can spend many hours of walking time if your want to. There is also, an Environmental Education Center onsite with restrooms, but on this Sunday, the center was closed until 11:00 am. A great place to get back with nature!

Fred Howard Park

Fred Howard Park consists of 155 acres and is located on the Gulf of Mexico. It's location provides access to the Gulf by a 1-mile long causeway. The white sandy beach is a popular swim area and also provides a perfect location to view spectacular sunsets.

Reviewed By DunedinDale - Dunedin, United States

Fred Howard Park has something for everyone. The park features several picnic shelters, hiking paths, waterfront views, beautiful trees and plants, playgrounds, water views, birds and other local small critters, and is very well kept. The causeway to the beach island is relatively newly paved and offers parking on one side for watercraft and fishing. The beach on the island is unspoiled and has the beautiful white sand the gulf coast is famous for, as well as some nice huge rocks along the north side for adventurers to climb on. You can spend the day at this park and have a variety of relaxing, beautiful experiences.
