Ybor City Overview

Ybor City is like Tampa's version of New Orleans' French Quarter, except that it is Latin, not French. A grid of roughly 4 by 9 blocks, Ybor City is a mix of old and new, classy and touristy, bar scene and upscale restaurants. It has a rich history with origins in the cigar making industry with strong immigrant influences from Cuba, Spain and Italy. While Friday and Saturday nights can be jumping with bar and club activities, other times can be downright quiet. There is something here for anyone to enjoy.
There has been a recent rejuvenation effort, which includes the adding modern version of old fashioned street cars as a means to get to Ybor City from other Tampa locations. Many festivals are held here including Gasparilla parades, Guavaween, and St Patrick's night parade.
