A Guide to Historic Tampa
Tampa—the town that began as a Civil War garrison, housed a cigar manufacturer's dream, and became a city oasis in paradise. Tampa is a spicy mix of cultures and traditions, some from as far away as the tip of South America—others as homegrown as the cigars from old Ybor City. Whether you want to discover the city's secrets, reminisce with the locals, or explore streets that retain the historic flavor of Old Florida, Author and local historian Steve Rajtar guides you through the history and historic sites of beautiful old Tampa, with wonderful vintage photographs and street-by-street details of "The Cigar City."
