Join us for an Ybor City Historic Walking Tour starting at Hotel Haya from 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM lead by @yborwalkingtours! In the fall of 1885 Vincente Martinez-Ybor purchased 40 acres of swampland and the saga of Ybor City began. Eventually, more than 230 factories were located here, employing 12,000 tabaqueros (cigar makers) and producing over half a billion cigars a year.
The rich history of Ybor encompasses manufacturing, immigration, organized crime and revolution. Teddy Roosevelt marched his Rough Riders here and walked the streets of this industry town with José Martí, the leader of Cuban independence. Now one of only three National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida, Ybor City’s unique history will come alive as you walk the area with award winning guides.
Enjoy special pricing as a Hotel Haya guest and a complimentary glass of bubbles (21+) at the end of the tour!
