Historic Neighborhoods of Tampa
Tampa includes two main sections that will provide you and your family with a sense of old-world charm and windows into the past: Hyde Park and Ybor City.

Another historic area worth of a stop is Ybor city, which has a very unique, eclectic culture with its vibrant and diverse community.
