Ybor City with the history of the Cuban cigar factories is very vibrant and interesting. Ybor City also has great food and lots of shopping. Saturday morning there is an art and design market.
Take a bike along the river to downtown and visit the Tampa museum of modern art, The Cube the Photography museum and the History museum.
