Welcome to the Ybor City Visitor Information Center!

The Chamber’s Visitor Information Center at Centro Ybor is a resource for everything Ybor.  It’s housed along with the Ybor City Cigar Museum in the world’s largest cigar box and provides information about Ybor attractions, Ybor history, and other fun places to visit in the Tampa Bay area.  Many people, including the general public, out-of-town visitors and even the media rely on the chamber as a source for information and referrals. Come in and sit in a replica of the cigar roller’s chair as you view the 10 minute video on the stories of Ybor and learn about the Ybor City National Historic Landmark District. If you are looking for the perfect gift to send home with visiting guests, we invite you to browse through our gift shop full of unique and distinctive Ybor City books and memorabilia.
