When the folks at the website OnlyInYourState.com decided to write about Florida’s most “Beautiful, Charming Small Towns,” they didn’t fail to mention the Tampa Bay area.
Two towns in particular made the list of eight – Tarpon Springs and Dunedin. The list represents the website’s pick of towns that are representative of the “charm of Old Florida.”
“Historic buildings, antique stores, and a gorgeous waterfront make this a perfect vacation spot,” the website noted about Tarpon Springs.
The city seems pleased with the No. 4 plug. It took to its Facebook page to announce its ranking while asking fans to share their favorite photos taken around town.
Nearby Dunedin came in eighth placed on the list. OnlyInYourState pointed to the city’s Scottish roots, its Mardi Gras celebration and Dunedin Brewery as some of the high points that make the town so special.
Writers didn’t elaborate on criteria used in the selections. Apalachicola was named to the No. 1 spot.
