The best way to explore and immerse yourself in Tampa culture is by taking a walk or a bike ride on its famous Riverwalk. The 2.4 water front path goes along the Hillsborough River in Garrison Channel and connects 5 museums, shops, and many hotels.
Ybor City is a historic neighborhood with a fascinating history! It is best known for its long standing cigar business. In fact, Ybor City was once considered the Cigar Capital of the World. But, perhaps the most exciting part about the city is that there is a piece of Cuba right in Ybor City in Tampa. Yes, you read that right! You’ll have a chance to stand on Cuban soil during your visit!
Another must-see location is the Tampa Theatre. It is one of the oldest and most historic buildings in Tampa, dating all the way back to 1926. It is also considered one of the most elaborate theaters across the entire country. With over a hundred events and movie screenings, the Tampa Theatre should definitely be on your to-do list.
