Since we learned about Fred Howard Park closing for renovations (it will be closed until Fall 2009), we’ve all been wondering where else to go in Tarpon Springs to enjoy the sand and take in a sunset. Well, we discovered a little known gem not far from Howard Park called Sunset Beach. Sunset Beach is just south of Fred Howard Park, off Florida Avenue. Although the water is not ideal for swimming, this beach is a great spot to relax by the water and watch the birds. Even better, pack a picnic dinner and head down for the sunset. It’s a quiet place to watch the setting sun. If you live in Tarpon Springs you may already know this little secret, but for those who are looking for Tarpon Springs real estate, it is good to know there are so many beautiful parks here.
Another thing we found out about Sunset Beach is that they have been hosting a Music on the Beach series once a month that runs from April to November. The shows are free, although donations are welcome and go towards the construction of a Beach Pavilion to be used for concerts and other events. Upcoming dates for the remainder of 2008 are Thursdays from 7-9 PM on Oct. 16 (Dapper Dan Band) and Nov 13 (Lil Pearl & the Big Boys). Tampa Bay real estate offers many homes in and around Tarpon Springs, come take a look.
