Florida – Ybor City (Tampa)

When in Tampa, I visited a cute neighborhood called Ybor City.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ybor_City & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tampa,_Florida)

I took the trolley from downtown Tampa to Ybor City.

The trolley went through the city streets, past the cruise ships, and to Ybor City.  It was an enjoyable ride!

It is also known for nightlife.

At about midnight on a weekend night, I drove through the area.  Lots of people were drinking and partying on the sidewalks and the main street.  The crowd looked to be primarily young, in their 20s.  Police cars were parked along the sides of the road.  Street were covered with debris.  Traffic moved very slowly, to avoid hitting people.
