Ybor City, Columbia Restaurant & Riverwalk
As we stroll the bar-lined brick streets of Ybor City with our local tour guide and historian, you might not realize you’re in the former cigar capital of the world. In1885, a Spanish cigar-manufacturer came to Tampa via Cuba and Key West. He built Ybor City as a corporate town that, at its peak in 1927, had 230 cigar factories with 12,000 cigar workers who rolled just under 600 million cigars, topping Cuba’s output. Before the Depression and cigarettes spoiled the party, Ybor City was the cigar capital of the world.
Next we’ll experience just a small sampling of all Tampa’s Riverwalk has to offer as we cruise the Hillsborough River on the Pirate Water Taxi. Riverwalk is an exciting, vibrant area that includes attractions and venues appealing to all ages, such as The Florida Aquarium, Tampa History Center, open air waterfront bars and restaurants, water craft and bike rentals, parks, museums, hotels, the Straz Theater, and the Tampa Arena, home of the Tampa Bay Lightning. You’ll be amazed at how much there is to discover and enjoy at Riverwalk.
