The Ghostly Side of Ybor City
Tampa's famous historic district called Ybor City is a well known area of Tampa that is very charming and quiet during the day. The area would remind you of a miniature New Orleans. The cobble stone streets and wrought iron balconies take you back to when Tampa was just a small town. This area is great for place for souvenir shopping or sipping some great Cuban coffee while watching cigars being made and rolled by hand.
At night Ybor comes alive with entertainment and street festivals. The bars, lounges, and restaurants come alive with young and old. But what also comes alive are the ghost that haunt this area.
One of the places that is claimed to be haunted is the Don Vicente de Ybor Historic Inn. The Inn was at one time a public clinic. Today visitors claim to see ghost of nurses that use to treat the patients. The Inn was on the Travel Channel show called The Dead Files and the episode was called "Hotel Hell"
Another location that claim to have ghost in Ybor is the famous Cuban Club. This social club was started in the early 1900's for the Cuban immigrants. Today the club is still be used for many social gatherings. The Cuban club was featured on the SyFy Channel Ghost Hunters television show and the episode "Club Dead".
