Tourist for the Weekend

Josh’s Aunt and cousin came to visit last weekend from Illinois.  We just had the best weekend together being tourists around Tampa and enjoying the slightly cooler weather.  This weekend was the first sign of Fall - the humidity was gone and the temp was a little cooler than it has been.  They picked they absolute best weekend to come visit!


We explored downtown Tampa and even did some things that Josh and I have never done over the 6 years of so that we’ve lived here.  We rode the trolley and walked through the historical Ybor district.  

3We spent Saturday in Tarpon Springs.  Tarpon is always on their must-do list when they are in town, and that is a-ok with me!  I love it there!  Tarpon is a little Greek village outside of Tampa.  They have the best Greek restaurants and shops on the Sponge Docks.  We spent the morning at a new beach that we’d never been to before – Howard Park. The weather was perfect (but water was a little cool in my opinion) and the beach wasn't crowded at all!IMG_0155

We headed to the Sponge Docks for lunch and ate at my favorite Greek restaurant – Santorini’s.  I had the best Greek Salad and their Sangria is to die for!  We sat outside by the water and watched the boats go by. 


The rest of the weekend was equally just as fun.  We spent a lot of time at the house too just relaxing!  It was great having them here!
