We tried Carmine’s for dinner and it was great. Parking is $1.00 anywhere. The historic houses and Cuban cigar shops are charming.

It is nice to walk around by the many restaurant, bars and cigar bars. It is an historical area of Tampa which has been restored into a lively and popular area.

Wonderful restaurants, lots of live music, nice drinks and fun. Had a great time with the wife making the rounds from club to club. Picked up a freshly hand rolled cigar for after dinner. Super nice historical part of Tampa you don't want to miss.

This is a very unique area to visit. There is a lot of cigar history, and even for someone who detests cigars (sorry cigar smokers) it is completely interesting and full of city history. Park and walk everywhere.

Great restaurants and bars. Cigar stores where you can watch Cuban men roll cigars. Lots of little stores. Parking is not a problem.
