Love Ybor City.. I visit at least once a week for lunch or dinner on the strip. The brick roads are a great place to eat, shop and take a walk with many of the restaurants & boutiques being privately owned, offers an eclectic mix each with their own twist. If you like cigars you can't skip this stop as many of the countries famous cigar manufactures are right here in the historic Tampa neighborhood. Ybor City has something for everyone!

Ybor is a nice place to go every once in awhile for bar hopping or dinner. It can get a little sketchy sometimes with crime.

What a fun way to see the sites and learn about the history of Ybor City! Lee was our Segway instructor and tour guide. It only takes a few minutes to get acclimated to the Segway. We certainly enjoyed our afternoon learning and getting tips on local businesses. Take your camera. Easy access from the streetcar at Ybor Centro. There are age/weight restrictions. Enjoy!!

Quaint historical quarter with architecture you won't see anywhere else near Tampa offers great restaurants like Columbia Restaurant (Florida's oldest, with amazing decor and atmosphere) and nightspots with live music; cafes, boutiques, and during the Xmas season, lights and decorations that really lighten your spirits.
