I have been to the keys a million times and I ALWAYS go to Mallory Square. You can watch the sunset, see the street performers, shop the local vendors, or go have cocktails at one of the many restaurants there. But def a Must do in the Keys for all ages.

Mallory Square has a lot to offer as far as shopping, food, tours, site seeing, information and a gorgeous view. It is definitely a place you don't want to miss when visiting Key West. At dusk every night there are entertainers in the square while everyone awaits the beautiful sunset. Another great part of the Key West experience. It is... More

Nice place to watch the sunset if you stay away from the old guy on the tightrope. He feels the area iis "his" and shoos you away before the sun finishes setting. What a jerk. Anyway, still a nice view, little chachkies for sale.

We visited Mallory Square on a few weekdays for the sunset festival. I would say it is worth going down there once....maybe not twice. There are several tours which depart from this area and some shops near here which are worthwhile. There is also a nearby indoor mall and the Shipwreck Museum.

This was our first trip to Key West and Mallory Square. As we are older, we sat on one of the benches to wait for the sunset. A woman came up to us and 3 other people sitting and told us to move - in not so nice a manner. She was setting up her T shirt display for sale.... More

Nightly venue with different street vendors, jugglers and street entertainment. Go at least once during your visit for the sunset, yes it's crowded -- but it's one of those places where it's only as fun as you make it.

I go to Mallory Square for sunset every time that I'm in Key West for 2 reasons. 1) The sunsets are beautiful and an easy walk to the bars. 2) The cat guy. This time, there was no cat guy!!! Say what?! Everyone is entitled to a night off, I suppose....but I really missed him!

If you see only one thing, make it sunset here. Lots of people doing the same thing you are, ie., snapping photos of the quickly setting sun - awesome!

I was really looking forward to a beautiful sunset celebration at Mallory Square after so many recommendations but was just disappointed when we arrived. This is definitely more of a family friendly type of sunset celebration than a romantic one. It was too crowded to really enjoy and a bit cheesy. There aren't many dining options on the water near...
