Reviewed 6 April 2018

I visited Ybor City with a friend. If you are not a drinker and a smoker, there is nothing much to do there except visiting the restaurants there, which mostly not that fancy. However, it was interesting to see how they roll cigars (LoL). Not much free parking, but if the weather allows, people can have a nice walk on the streets.

We expected this to be a “destination” with shopping, bars and restaurants...a place to spend several hours. On a Thursday evening, however, it was completely empty. We just went to one restaurant and went back to our hotel. Perhaps it is different on the weekends? We just felt very “meh.”

Fascinating revival of historic district in Tampa, FL old part of city. Plenty of restaurants to choose from, everyone will find something fitting his/her taste. History of cigar rolling, you can watch them to do it. We were during daytime, but I can only imagine how vibrant it is during night when music takes over this place. Must see 7 min film about Tampa in Visitors Center.

Ybor used to to be such a great place to visit but not anymore. No shops, sparce good restaurant choices, basically nothing to do during the afternoon. Not a safe place after 11 p.m. either

Great place to walk at night and grab a bite to eat. try the off the wall places were the food is much better and more reasonably priced. Had the kids with me so could not go into any of the sleazy bars with wonderful music coming out the door. Will be going back in the future with an adult group to enjoy the night life.
