Depending on what you feel like doing: during the daylight, Ybor can offer a historical insight into Tampa. Cobblestone roads & old buildings like the streets. The area as a whole, is somewhat ghetto. By night, Ybor is like Bourbon Street @ Mardi Gras. And because of the clubs, crime is always near. You pay $5 to park in any of the garages/homemade parking lot...and be prepared to walk. (Ladies, heels look nice, but aren't so comfy traipsing around Ybor.) 7th Avenue is a long street, filled with your choice of bars, clubs, pubs, & different shops. Any kind of music, whatever crowd/scenery you prefer...from a dive bar, to a gay club, to a tattoo shop. Admission prices vary, depending on the day & time you're going out...and where you're going. For instance, Club Prana is an older crowd...25 & up...no cover for ladies until 10pm Fri-Sun. Full Moon Saloon is a HUGE club for 18 & up, & they do 3 drinks for the price of 1 on Friday nights, on select alcohol. The dive bar may offer $1 draft beers for hospitality workers on Sundays...it all depends. POLICE are everywhere & don't play about drinking & driving, so be careful about that. But if you come to Tampa, you have to do it @least once, to experience it...it really is an experience all in & of itself.
