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.

Bars are fun and lively. Be sure to visit Bad Monkey and Doubledecker. They are right nextdoor to each other. There are also many restaurants in the area, but we didn't try any. Historic, New Orleans vibe area of tampa.
