Historic Ybor City Tour
Ybor City, a historic neighborhood of Tampa, Florida, was settled more than 100 years ago by Cuban cigar manufacturers and has maintained its signature Latin flair, with historic brick buildings, narrow cobbled streets, and a diverse offering of flavors, sights, and sounds. Though traditionally a Cuban community, Ybor City also has been host to Spanish and Italian immigrants throughout its rich history. The tour will lead participants through the heart of Ybor City with particular attention paid to its historic background. The tour will be led by historian Wallace Reyes, an advisor for the Ybor Museum State Park and a Grand Master cigar roller—one of three such certified artisans in the world.
Fee: $115
