“Not for me”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Seemed like a nice place to walk, shop, sight-see and eat, until we saw a store that sells products for drug use. Also looks like the economy has hit this place hard since the beautiful buildings look abandoned. This just wasn't our type of place, sorry Ybor.

“Nice place to walk around”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This was a nice area to walk around. It looked like a lot of good restaurants and shops are located here (we were there too early in the day) but even if you just like to walk around its a good place to do it.

“Very special historic district in dull Tampa”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

The old buildings, sigar shops, restaurants. The downside (for seniors) is the noise of disco's and bars.

“Ybor”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Ybor is a nice visit during the day, a bit exciting at night. It's been cleaned up a lot compared to how it was ten years ago.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Lot's of choices, but I like Carmines. Try the Blue Crab pasta on the weekend - delicious. Good for lunch too - try the deviled crab or the half cuban, spanish bean soup combo.
