Duval Street offers everything imaginable from great food, quaint shops, historic bars to historic buildings and people watching. If you are a people watcher you'll get to observe many entertaining people, all very friendly. You'll see many chickens, roosters and their babies along the street and shops eating crumbs on the sidewalks and just hanging around. My family and I... More

Either the shops are very good or their a typical tourist trap - all mixed in together. Found a number of the tourist traps but be owned by a lot of the same owners because they all seems to have the same merchandise in them. BUT the nicer shops were great to shop in - quality merchandise and for the... More

Noisy, crazy, full of revellers and tourists and shoppers and people wandering by sipping beers and drinks. Shops, bars, resturants. Scooters, bikes, a few cars. If you want to experience Duval Street and Key West properly, get out there on foot if you are able, and soak up the atmosphere.

You can walk Duval Street and get any kind of cuisine that your heart desires. Also, interesting art houses.

Can feel a bit like a dive walk. But, it does have ambiance with all the bars serving drinks in plastic cups and cheap t-shirt shops. Just don't expect anything fancy in the first few blocks from the water. Nicer galleries and shops are further inland.

This was the calmest Saturday I have ever seen on Duval Street. The gawkers were small in numbers as were the oddities. The usual curio shops, bars, art galleries and places to grab a bite. Night time brings out the strangeness. It was spring break and the college kids were all at Dante's drinking, playing beer pong and dancing.

It is about 6 blocks of fun. Outdoor bars, LOT's of live music! Sloppy Joe's was fun and we went to a drag show that was kind of lame. There are a lot of food and bar choices.

This is the spot. Reminded me of the French Quarter in New Orleans, though not quite as decadent as Bourbon St (but pretty close). A long strip of bars, restaurants, shops and other diversions. Great place for people watching. You could easily spend an evening here, just make sure you've got a way home after you've partied!

not impressed with key wests shopping district. I guess it is something you have to see once. We didn't spend much time there when we got off our cruise ship.
