Cool city with neat spots that have distinctive southern charm. Has a very historic feel that is uniquely Tampa.

There are a lot of historical areas in Ybor city. The area is filled with street people and shady characters. Go in a group and watch your purses.

Great venue. Costs for parking in most places. Be extra aware of your surroundings in Ybor City, as it can get very seedy very quickly. Otherwise, Centro Ybor has something nice for everyone, and weekdays are pleasant. Weekends are when the hard core party takes...More
