Ybor is a fun place filled with shops and restaurants and at one time the heart of the cigar industry. If you enjoy a good cigar this is a great place to go. You can watch them roll and buy some great cigars that rival some of the best imports. My family and I pretty much go during the day... More

So interesting to watch. Young woman who explained the process is obviously knowledgAble about cigar making. Her enthusiasm and passion for the art are contagious. We will be back with family.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, had a nice lunch at the Tropicana (see review), and visited several shops. Couple of cool vintage stores, plentiful cigar shops (with people rolling cigars), some shops would not be appropriate for younger kids, but for an afternoon walking tour, we had a blast! The history of the area and the architecture are well worth... More

After reading the reviews, I didn't have much hope for Ybor City. We went on a Saturday in June. There was a small vendor fair set up in the park from 9-1 that we happened upon at 12:55. My friend bought some fresh squeezed lemonade that was good. Everything else was closing up. The first store we tried to enter... More

Went to Ybor City during the day. Not knowing that it was a bar/nighttime place. This place is not for the faint of heart, not for children. A lot of weird bars. We thought it was going to have shops and nice restaurants. We saw one lady making cigars. We were followed around by this couple who looked like they... More

Ybor City is an interesting place to have Cuban coffee (very strong and often served with extra sugar) and Cuban toast for breakfast. Afternoon is hot with not much happening and the area lights up when the clubs start opening and the music starts in late evening. Warning: Don't venture more than a block either way from Seventh Avenue at... More

At night, the darkness probably covers Ybor's age with its festivie nightlife. The brick streets and architecture are interesting.
