Can't deny the historical significance of Ibor and it is very relevant today given the easing of relations with Cuba. In addition, the area has alot of great restaurants--what better example than the original Columbia. We also like Bernini's. Makes for a great afternoon and a wonderful lunch/early dinner venue.

Having worked in urban revitalization, I saw the signs of a hopeful recovery. Definitely visit the museum where the stories of equal opportunity and a benevolent corporate cigar magnate will fascinate.

Ybor has tons of action and attractions to enjoy. The food culturally diverse as is the atmosphere. I would advise you to be careful in the latter part of the evening and definitely don't take children out and about. It's not so safe and as time goes by its less safe. Daytime is best.

I have been to Ybor many times and like it more in the day to go watch a movie or get something to eat. Nightime seems to get pretty crazy after midnight. You can get on a trolley or take a tour through many old buildings for a few bucks. there is some awesome pizza places and many places with... More

if you are into the club scene and are 18-30, then this is the place for you. It could be a great area if they cleaned up the streets and places around there. Its not in the greatest of neighborhoods. In my opinion, they have a better choice of places to eat, than clubs and bars.

Really enjoyed this area. Had a little of the Bourbon Street vibe. Rich history. Park your car and take a walk.

Ybor City is one of the historic venues around Tampa that has a multi-cultural atmosphere along with a touch of old forgotten impoverished streets and homes and some attempts to bring new upscale shops and businesses to replace the blight. The work that has been done is impressive and you will find some of my "5" ratings for restaurants like... More

Ybor is so much fun to visit. Been there many times as a Tampa resident. Great restaurants and bars, cool movie theater, Improv, Colombia Restaurant in particular, and just walking the streets when they're closed off from vehicles. But...be careful at night. When you venture off the Avenue to go back to your car, keep your eyes peeled for safety's... More
