Introduction

graphicgraphicLet’s answer your main question right away: Yes, our average annual temperature here in Tarpon Springs is 72.8 degrees, and our normal annual rainfall is 54.27 inches. Our hot months are July and August, where the average highs are 90 and the lows 73. But the 73- to 77- degree high range from November through February more than balances the extremes. And with a cool breeze blowing off the Gulf of Mexico, you’ll rarely hear a complaint about the weather at any temperature.

With such pleasant a climate, no wonder 20,000 people call us home.

Forty-one percent of families don’t have children living with them; 26 percent of households are owned by singles. The median home value is $80,700; the average household income is $38,295 per year. That breaks down to a $13,554 per capita income.
