If you are looking for a long weekend get away, Tarpon Springs is one of the places in Florida that you must visit.
My husband and I found this little gem one weekend looking for a place to fish. Google map as my resources to find a fishing spot. I found this place on the canal using VRBO as my search engine for homes away from home. It’s just for a long weekend get away. I took Monday and Tuesday off to have a four day weekend of fun fishing.
