For a place with an interesting history (the cigar industry of Key West moved here after an early 20th century hurricane) there is a great Cuban vibe to the place. OTOH, it's also been gentrified, with cutsey art galleries and shops. Worth an hour's walk.

This area is somewhat like a French Quarter feel, lots of bars to party at, and walk ways to enjoy but we didn't see much of it as we ran out of time. The staff friendly at the area bars, etc.

Great place to walk and people watch for all ages. So many places to eat it's difficult to choose! As the evening progressed the partying started. Different each part of the day. We needed way more than one evening to experience Ybor City properly.

Loved this area, lots of bars and restaurants and just a really good feel to it. We visited here every day we were in Tampa. Recommended

Cuban enclave outside Tampa - lively. Great walkability. Lots of shops, bars, restaurants to pop into along the way. Like an outdoor street party - it gets a little more wild after 10pm or so so judge accordingly. Ybor is a must see though!

And Tampa Sweethearts is another cigar place I like in Ybor. Not a bar but a pretty cool porch to sit on in front of the store and enjoy a coffee or espresso.

I have seen dogs on leashes but I would call the Florida Convention Center or Pirate Bay River Taxi. Someone there will be able to better assist you on rules and regulations. It's beautiful, enjoy!
