  • Cool little square on the pier where everyone gathers in the city to watch the sunset. It has plenty of food and alcohol attached to it all around so don't worry about that. When I first read the reviews online they said that the whole town comes to watch the sunset and it really is true. There were people everywhere, even on a week day and plenty of street performers. It was weird and cool honestly. Park whereever is convenient - the whole town is pretty much walkable anyway.
  • Nice place to walk around. Beautiful waterfront area. Several historical attractions in the area. Plenty of restaurants. On Duval Street. There are many tourist gifts shops-some might find this a detraction but tourism is the primary source of income so this is to be expected.
  • For 20 years I have love "Sunset Celebrations" at Mallory Square. I brought a visiting friend last night and she loved it too. Music, juggling, sword-swallowing etc with a backdrop of the sunset and all the boats on the water...just gorgeous. If you are visiting Key West, bring the family go and experience...it''s free.
  • Cool tho island in way of sun set. Homeless people hang out. Really tho homeless don't mess with you street performers awsome. So it's a great area. Safe feel.
  • The place is full of tourist. We loved the street food here, especially fish taco from a small booth with mix of Peruvian and Asian favor. So YUMMY. You can find a lot of things going on here. Gorgeous sunset. Parade of boats. A wonderful place to visit.
