Greetings all!

Any info would be appreciated to research a relo to Tampa area/Tarpon Springs. I'd like to narrow things down a bit and would like resident input.

My wife and I are in our 40's and have a 7 year old son. We currently live in Fairfield County, CT and are researching relocation potential for us. We own our home here and know that if we sell, we can get more bang for our buck down there.

We are Greek Americans and active in our church community here and very much would like to have that focus in wherever we move to. Especially when it comes to my son, I like the fact that there is Greek American schooling in that area.

Now I understand although Tampa is more city, it does have a day school via St. John's church. That's great.

However, Tarpon Springs has the cathedral there with the surrounding Greek influenced area is quite nice as well. We think that is awesome.

Of course, safe areas, good schooling, access to goods and services and home prices are always top items.

What feedback can anyone give regarding comparing and contrasting both places as move possibilities.

Anything you can post would be super.

Thanks alot!

hiya paul ! without a doubt tarpon springs ..
it is a very close 'community' & very different from the rest of florida ..
as a greek i wouldn't even consider living anywhere else ..
tampa is close & great for a visit or to shop ...big city as opposed to a 'walking neighborhood ......
stick with tarpon , you won't be sorry !
