1. Tarpon Springs, FL
If you can't make it to Santorini this year, the next best thing just might be in Florida. This city on the gulf is known for three things: being the "sponge capital of the world;" having 51 miles of pristine waterline; and its Greek heritage. A legacy of the Greek sponge divers who settled here in the early 1900s, Greek eateries line the main street, Dodecanese Boulevard. Spend your time browsing art galleries, antique stores, and specialty shops housed in buildings that date back to the 1800s.
