Three days in Tampa

Once the world’s cigar-making capital, this Floridian bayside city is flourishing thanks to its New Orleans-esque heritage district, Cuban culture and inventive dining scene.

MINI GUIDE

The 112-year-old Columbia Restaurant

Day one

1 ULELE

Inside a historic red-brick pump house by the Hillsborough River, Ulele is a cavernous modern space starring original art from the owner’s collection. The menu is inspired by the ingredients of the bay’s native peoples and Spanish explorers. Enjoy creative cocktails and craft beer made on-site (ulele.com; 1810 N Highland Ave; 11am–10pm Sun–Thu, to 11pm Fri–Sat; mains from £10).

2 HYDE PARK

This bayside neighbourhood of 1920s Arts-and-cCafts bungalows gives a fascinating insight into Tampa’s community before the downtown glass-and-steel towers took over. Stop by French-inspired Piquant for a takeaway coffee (piquanthydepark.com; 1633 W Snow Ave; 8am–8pm Mon–Wed & Sun, to 9pm Thu–Sat). Finish up at glittering Bayshore Boulevard, the world’s longest continuous sidewalk.
