Just west of Channelside is Downtown Tampa – a hub of culture and popular attractions. A plethora of museums, including the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, Clazer Children’s Museum, and the Tampa Bay History Center, are located in Downtown Tampa. Between the Straz Performing Arts Center, the Tampa Convention Center, and the Amalie Arena, there is always a live performance or sports event to attend. Not to mention, there are plenty of photo ops at the Tampa Riverwalk, the Timuquan Indian Mound, and at the life-sized John Lennon statue.
Ybor City is located just East of Channelside. This National Historic Landmark District continues teeming with life and activity that started when immigrants from Cuba, Spain, and Italy settled this area in the late 1800s. Today, Ybor City is the cigar-making capital of the world and home to an eclectic mix of residential and retail spaces, including cafés, restaurants, entertainment venues, and universities. Not to mention, there are plenty of modern traditions like the Ybor City Saturday Market, where local artists and purveyors sell their produce.
