Are you looking for a fun day trip and want to help support the Wildwood Wildcats Booster Club at the same time? Join them on a bus trip and experience Tarpon Springs. I hear there are plenty of fantastic Greek restaurants to experience! The Big Fat Greek Day Trip to Tarpon Springs is May 7th, 2022 8am – 5pm.
Less than two hours away from The Villages® lies the historic town of Tarpon Springs where everything is…well…Greek! Tarpon Springs was built on the backs of the Greek fisherman/sponge divers and their families settled in the area in the late 1890s. The historic downtown area looks like a movie set from the 1950s and many movies have been filmed there including Beneath the 12 Mile Reef.
The tour includes roundtrip deluxe motorcoach transportation from the Brownwood Hotel porte cochere. There will be a guided tour of the area, including St Nicholas Cathedral. The cathedral is home to the St. Nicholas weeping icon, a certified miracle in the Greek Orthodox Church. Also included is time for shopping and lunch on your own. While lunch is not included in the ticket price, there are several restaurants right on Dodacanese Blvd. Plus, you cannot miss a stop at Hella’s Bakery. Make sure to bring a little extra money for sponge shopping (you’ll learn which ones are the best for bathing, crafts, or plants) and olive oil soap.
The bus will leave the Brownwood Hotel promptly at 8:00am. You can bring a cooler with drinks and snacks if you like. Anticipate returning to Brownwood Hotel by 5:00pm. Bring a little cash to participate in gift basket and 50/50 raffles on the bus.
Reservations are limited! Tickets are $65.00 per person. A portion of the cost of each ticket will go to the WWBC. To reserve: E-mail Donna Lasko at Lasko3420@gmail.com with the name(s) in your party and your email address and phone number. Checks should be made out to WWBC and mailed to: Donna Lasko, 3420 Kananwood Terrace, The Villages, FL 32163
