“Lots to see and do. Tampa's version of Bourbon Street”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Plenty of night clubs, bars, and restaurants. Movie theatre, historic places, and fresh hand rolled cigars. This is a MUST DO if you come to visit Tampa. There truly is something for everyone. Young, old, partier or sightseer.

“We love Ybor City”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

There are allot of things to do .the family crowds come early and leave early. There is a theater a walking tour around 10am near the bronze statue that give historic details of the cities back ground and several restaurants to pick from. Then there is the late night party crowd in the evenings after 10 pm with night clubs and plenty of bars and late night specials too. Seems like there maybe something for everyone. I love the parades they have during Gasparilla and St. Patrick day too.

“A must see during a visit to Tampa!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

A historic part of Tampa that provides something of interest for everyone. Wonderful Resturants, cigar bars, coffee houses, shopping and music. We have been to many day & night events in Ybor and have always felt welcome and safe in the places we visit. As in any city, there are areas that do not encourage tourists & those should be avoided.

“Geat during the day, not so much at night”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is a nice little historic town during the day but it turns once it gets dark. 7th ave is the bar/club stip so there are drunks and sketchy people around. Not the safest at all.

“Best Part of Our Trip”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My girlfriend and Iwent to Ybor while we were in Tampa for our anniversary, and loved it. I am a big fan of cigars, and all of the local shops were very nice about talking to you about their product. It was a great place to walk around and see some history. Had a great dinner at a Columbia restaurant. A must see.
