  • This is a nice spot to end your day in Old Town Key West. Get an ice cream cone and watch the sunset after a stroll along the promenade checking out the yachts and people-watching.  more »
  • It’s a required place to visit in Key West. Come see the sunset and maybe a street performer. It wasn’t that busy because of COVID-19 and almost everyone was wearing a mask. Felt safe.  more »
  • Been here before when it was alive with music and people everywhere. Not this trip, Covid killed it...  more »

  • Very pleasant and happening place. Night shows are good. View is awesome. Great snacking options like Freshly made Guacamole and Chips (really tasty) and Tender coconut. Good shopping centers. It's a Must go place.
  • Most happening place during sun set. There were 100s of people gathered here. Local artists showing their skills and people watching sun set in the ocean. Various places to grab snacks. It was partially sunny day and we were not sure if we will get to see the sunset but it was beautiful. We didn’t see the sun go all the way down because of clouds but it turned the sky all orange.
  • This is a place where you can see the beauty of our world and be embraced in the culture of Florida! There are street performers that line the boulevard and restaurants that have about any type of food. It gets busy during the sunset and some of the street performers can get pretty aggressive for money, but it's like any busy area. Be mindful and respectful. Go check it out and grab a bite to eat from a local vendor!
  • My wife and I explored Mallory Square earlier this week and the changing view with different types of boats going by was very calming & peaceful. There are public rest rooms available at this location. There were many different kinds of birds which stopped by our location including several roosters which I have observed at several locations in the city. Many bicycle tour groups as well as individual bicyclist riders also stopped here. We did not observe the sunset activities.
  • Very cool place. Very beautiful in the day but so much fun at night. The sunset was gorgeous on my first night but then it rained the rest of my trip. However, I got the one night to enjoy the performers and the view. Catman was my favorite and he performs at the end of the square. There were lots of very talented performers and I was in awe. Loved this sunset festival- I missed it before when I was on a cruise since the ships block the view and have to leave before sunset.
