Ybor City in Tampa, FL is a fantastic place to visit. There is a lot of Cuban and Italian history in this area. There are excellent restaurants, cigar shops and shopping. It makes a nice weekend trip.

We walked through Ybor City before noon and saw many interesting sites. The cigar rollers went about their tasks as chickens and roosters walked through the streets. We saw various historical statues and monuments as we strolled about the area.

Had a great time walking up and down the neighborhood checking out the shops and bars along the way. Lots of activity going on with a fun vibe! Could see how it could get a little crazy after dark though. Still a fun afternoon!
