Of course, the sunsets are famous and its where crowds gather to applaud as the sun appears to descend... More

We took good advice and got to Mallory Square an hour before sunset to take an upstairs spot for a front row sunset view seat at Bistro 245 to have a drink & appetizer, watch the crowd & entertainers, and enjoy the scenery. Anyone standing along the gulf-front at Mallory Square had a fabulous view. The sunset over the Gulf... More

My husband and I went to Mallory Square and watched a couple of street performers, then, the main attraction, the sunset. The performers were entertaining, but not shy about asking you to contribute to their cause. Quite a crowd forms at sunset, our first night there, my husband had me up on his shoulders so I could get some decent... More

This is an eccentric, French-accented dude who has somehow trained your typical house cat to jump through fiery hoops, cling to his T-shirt and otherwise prance around the little area he cordons off with an extension cord! Named Dominique, he never takes himself (or anybody else) too seriously, although he reminds you that his adult daughter got a degree in... More
