Today it’s an entertainment and nightlife neighbourhood, but the Ybor’s origins lie in the cigar factories here that once produced millions of cigarettes, and the immigrant labourers who made them. The Great Depression of the 1920s nearly killed the neighbourhood and over the next decades the place declined and deteriorated. The moving in artists looking for cheap places to stay in the 1980s put it back into the path of recovery. An explosion ofbars, restaurants, nightclubs led to an explosion of traffic. Now, not only is this Tampa’s premier party destination, a portion of the district, GaYbor, has established business neighbourhood catering to the LGBT community.

Several annual events take place here, such as:

  • Fiesta - Latin culture and food, mid-February.
  • Sant'Yago Knight Parade - The Saturday following the Gasparilla Pirate Festival in late February.
  • Rough Rider's St. Patrick's Night Parade - St. Patrick's Day illuminated nighttime parade.
  • FestaItaliana Weekend – Mid-April Italian food fest.
  • GaYbor Days– Four day street fest.

Museums of note include:

  • Cigar Museum And Visitor Center, Ybor City
  • Ybor City Museum State Park
  • TECO Line Streetcar Museum

The place is now recognised as an important neighbourhood and listed as a National Historic Landmark District. A number of buildings here are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
