To much drinking and rip off tee shops. Some really good restaurants at the Atlantic side that is family friendly. Sex and drugs everywhere else. Probably our last visit yo key west. Even the guest house we stayed in was all about drinking and sex! Ugh! We are giving up on key west altogether!

There are a lot of things to like about Key West. From the fishing to the boating and historic sites. The Duval Street bar scene is still the center of the Key West magic. Don't miss it. Sloppy Joe's, the original Margaritaville, Hogs Breadth, and Captain Tony's are all worth a visit. For those who are really into Key West... More

I've lived in Florida off and on for most of fifty years. I can truly tell you once you get sand in your shoes you will always come back. Key West is one of my most favorite places to visit, with all it's eccentricities, it's just off the wall fun. There is great food, drink and entertainment. It's old and... More

If you visit Key West you should be spending the majority of your time on or right around Duval St. It is worth walking the entire length and seeing everything there is to offer along this strip. If you like to run in the morning it is also a nice street to run along since there is always something or... More

Duval St is the center spot of Key West. A must see Street with many bars, restaurants, craftsmen, souvenirs stores... You will be there probably. It's for all ages during the day, but at night the bars become nightclubs and the street will be crowded of people hanging out.

Duval Street is the heart of Key West! Famous because it is running from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. It is about 1,6 km (1 mile) long and named after William Pope Duval, the first Governor of Florida. Key West itself is 3 km by 8 km (2 miles by 5 miles). When you walk along Duval... More

My ancestors were ships' captains in Key West, so we love to go there. Growing up in Miami, I watched it develop from an important WW II sub station to the grand party town it is today. If you've not been there you haven't seen the famous "conch houses'--big old wooden houses, (some magnificent mansions), that line the streets of... More

There are many places I would consider moving permanently and this makes me want to make it Key West. Such a fun lively place with a Caribbean feel and wonderful shops from end to end. Be prepared for large crowds and some crazy drunk people late at night, but it's a decent area for a visit. Stay on Duval if... More

My family and I were disgusted by the obscene gay clubs and all the trannys. Open windows to the clubs show half naked gay men dancing sexually. This is not a family friendly street. My advice, stay away unless you want to expose your family obcene behavior by the homosexuals.

The street is famous party street with a lot of bars and restaurants. It's a little dirty and smelled of urine. But there are many bars and restaurants to choose from and it's easy to find a nice time on Duval Street.
