It was Don Vicente Martinez Ybor, a Cuban cigar manufacturer that made Tampa an important cigar-producing city in 1885. There were over 200 cigar factories in Ybor City, the old part of Tampa in the 1800s. Now Ybor City, once known as Cigar Capital of the World is one of the three National Historic Landmark districts in Florida. You can still visit a few cigar makers in Ybor City.
There are only two cigar factories left in Ybor City. Watch how a hand-rolled cigar is made on Seventh Avenue, Ybor City. This street was recognized as the “10 Greatest Streets in America” in 2008.
We recommend dining at Columbia Restaurant, the oldest restaurant in Florida. Try their Cuban sandwich, sangria and watch the flamenco dance at night. Another place worth visiting is the Henry B. Plant Museum.
