Tarpon Springs hopes to boost tourism


MONTHS THE JUDGE ORDERED THAT SHE BE ARRESTED AND SENT TO THE COUNTY JAIL FOR A YEAR. NEW THIS MORNING THE FIGHT FOR TOURISM IS ON IN PINELLAS COUNTY. COMMUNITY LEADERS INTARPON SPRINGS WANT TO LURE VISITORS TO THE CITY. AS RYANHUGHES REPORTS THERE’S A TWO-FOLD APPROACH TO GET THEM THERE. BUSINESS OWNERS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS WANT TO BRING MORE VISITORS TO TARPON SPRINGS. THEY TELL ME THERE ARE 2 BIG REASONS WHY PEOPLE SHOULD VISIT THIS TINY CITY IN PINELLAS COUNTY. WHEN PEOPLE THINK OFTHE GULF COAST OF FLORIDA USUALLY TAMPA, ST. PETERSBURG AND CLEARWATER COME TO MIND. BUT GO OFF THE BEATEN PATH AND TARPON SPRINGS IS THE PLACE TO VISIT. THIS TINY CITY IN THE NORTHERN PART OF PINELLAS COUNTY CONSTANTLY VIES FOR TOURISM. IT IS TO TRY AND GET AS MANY PEOPLE UP HERE AND GET THE PEOPLE FROM THE BEACHES UP HERE. AND NEW TOURISTS. IT IS TWO-FOLD. VISITORS CANENJOY DOWNTOWN WHERE RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS DOT THE STREET OR THEY CAN VISIT THE SPONGE DOCKS AND WATCH FISHERMAN PULL IN THE FAMOUS SPONGES. I THINK WE’RE THE ONLY CITY THAT HAS 2 DESTINATIONS. WE’REVERY UNIQUE. MERCHANT ASSOCIATION MEMBERS TELL NEWS CHANNEL 8 THE CITY HAS A LOT TO OFFER BUT LAX IN A CERTAIN AREA HOTEL ROOMS. CITYLEADERS ARE WORKING TO REEL IN COMPANIES TO MAKE TARPON SPRINGS MORE THAN A DAY TRIP DESTINATION. WELL, WE’RE A SMALL CITY. SO FINANCIALLY IT’S HARD TO DO MAJOR ADVERTISING. SO THEY’LL GET THE WORD OUT AS MUCH AS THEY CAN HOPING TO MAKE THIS THE NEXT WELL-KNOWN DESTINATION IN FLORIDA. IT HOLDS FIRST FRIDAY DESTINATIONS TONIGHT’S THEME PLANT TIN NIGHT — LATIN NIGHT. . THAT WOULD BE KIND OF FUN. I’VE BEEN UP THERE. LOTS TODO AND SEE AND THE GREEK
