Unlike Orlando, Tampa is filled with history. It began as a fishing village in 1521 and the natives called it Tanpa (stick of fire). It became an important city in Florida when Henry B. Plant extended the railroad to Tampa in 1884. The boom came when a steamship line was started from Tampa to Key West to Havana, Cuba.

Today, you can trace the history of Tampa in Ybor City-Tampa’s historic Latin Quarter. Ybor City still maintains its old charm.

Cuban businessman Don Vicente Martinez-Ybor founded Ybor City and made it a cigar-manufacturing center.

Visitors can see the “hand-rolled cigar” in the cigar store, try Ybor City’s café con leche (coffee with milk), see old buildings with wrought iron balconies, walk on narrow brick streets and eat Spanish food and watch flamenco at Columbia Restaurant, Florida’s oldest restaurant.

Ybor City is a National Historic Landmark. It was once a Cigar Capital of the world and now there are only 2 cigar factories left. For more info on Ybor City, check out
