Ybor City is a cultural district in Tampa, Florida. The city was founded by cigar manufacturers and quickly became the center of social life for many immigrants to America at that time.
Now it’s home to restaurants and bars with Latin flair as well as nightclubs popular among college students from the University of South Florida and Hillsborough Community College campuses.
