Hailed as Florida’s version of NOLA, Ybor City makes for a great day pursuit for families. It’s history lies in its Cuban roots, with America’s two oldest cigar-making companies situated here – Tampa Sweetheart Cigars (Arturo Fuente family) and J.C. Newman Cigar Co. You’ll find restaurants, bars and retail in Centro Ybor, anchored by the award-winning Columbia Restaurant, operating for more than a century. Coppertail Brewing Co. serves a stern IPA, while La Tropicana Cafe has fantastic Cuban-Spanish cuisine. Finish your day with some bellyaching laughs at Tampa Improv. For younger travelers into the nightclub scene, Ybor City’s 7th Avenue boasts plenty of chic dance hideaways, upscale clubs or casual burger joints with live music.
