We took an Uber there Sunday morning and realized it was a bad choice. We walked 5 blocks and saw nothing but bars and homeless or drunks sleeping on the ground in corridors. It must be a Cruise Ship hangout. Very dirty place.

I find the safest the time to go there is around 6 pm to 11 pm. During the week not a large crowd and great time to see a movie and get a delicious bite to eat. Can be dicey after midnight.

Ybor city is so unique. With all the little eclectic shops and food and cigar shops. We saw chickens just walking the streets. Such a neat experience.

The area looks amazing! Lots of beautiful old buildings and great bars and restaurants. During a weekday it's pretty quiet, so going there in the evening / weekend will be more entertaining!
