  • Cheesy entertainment and expensive booze. There are tons of places to watch the sunset depending what time of year you are there. 
  • Super fun place to go! Every night is the sunset celebration and there are all kinds of vendors! If you've been there enough, you'll see a lot of the same people; but it's fun nonetheless! Lots to do, gorgeous views to see, and great food!
  • Best place to watch the sunset in Key West. You won't be disappointed. Come early for the nightly sunset festival that begins two hours before the sun sets into the Gulf of Mexico with numerous attractions and entertainment meant to keep things lively. Naturally, this area will be crowded with tourists and locals looking to watch and also capture some great photos. If you're looking for a quieter spot, just walking along the Square is easy to find an area with less people. Grab a mojito from the Bacardi stand while you're at it and definitely don't miss when in Key West.
  • Mallory square is the perfect place to see the "Show" sunset celebration! Every night vendors, local to key west, present their beautiful personally hand made products. Food, drinks, treats, crafts, clothes, and souvenirs , they are various and unique and completely original! Pieces of the keys for any visitor to choose from. A gorgeous setting as the sun sets from the southern most point, and street theather to enjoy jugglers, unicycle riders, right rope walker, sword swallowers, gymnastics, even coconut man chopping open a fresh coconut for you to drink! If your not smiling, you must be sleep walking!
  • Great spot to enjoy the sunset, shop and people watch. The street performers are entertaining, and the local vendors that set up each night have some wonderful and unique things for sale.
  • BEST SPOT TO SEE THE SUNSET...... If you're visiting the keys you HAVE to come here to watch the sunset and enjoy some world class steet prformers such as Juggling Jase!
