Blend past and present for a unique Tampa experience


Stroll the shores of the picturesque Hillsborough River while learning the history of this fair city. See the historic Henry Plant Hotel where Teddy Roosevelt trained his troops for the Spanish American War, pass by where Ton Jannus landed on his historic flight over Tampa Bay, enter the peaceful nave of the oldest cathedral in the area, and soak in the sun and flavor of Tampa. Take an old-time trolley to the Cuban town of Ybor City, erstwhile cigar capital of the world, passing by the cruise port, Florida aquarium, and an outdoor mall. In Ybor meander the brick streets where you will see preserved ethnic social centers, watch Cuban cigars being rolled, and revel in some old world flavor. Enter the iconic Columbia Restaurant famous since 1907 for its great Cuban food and mosaics, finally ending up back at the Embassy Suites.
