Had a great time in Ybor City walking around and eating great food. The shopping is excellent as well. You can't go wrong going here for a day or evening outing.

If you want to eat at the Columbia, go early or late, or be prepared to wait at the weekend. Kelly's was a great bar and the entertainment was top notch. We ended up eating at Gaspers which was only so-so.

Visit Ybor City! There's so much to see and do. Lots of restaurants, don't go to The Columbia though, it's bad. Ybor is lively and fun and there's always something interesting going on. Great shopping too.

You can't go wrong by visiting this little city. The issue is too many shutdown stores which don't leave a good impression.

I have seen dogs on leashes but I would call the Florida Convention Center or Pirate Bay River Taxi. Someone there will be able to better assist you on rules and regulations. It's beautiful, enjoy!
Do you know if they are open on Sundays? We are planning on being in Tampa the day before our cruise ship leaves. Our flight gets in before noon so we have some time to visit some sites. Thanks
