“Changed over the years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

Go just before sunset and work your way past all the vendor carts towards the water. If the cruise ships are not in, you'll have a good view of the sunset. And the street performaers are now back on the square. Makes a fun time. A dog that passes the collection plate for his guitar playing owner, a uni-cyclist that juggles, and a man with trained, tight rope walking cats (how do you train a cat?).

“A Must Do in Key West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

This is a must-do if visiting Key West. Bring a handfull of $1 for the street performers / artists, a camera and enjoy the sights. Artists all over, street performers, sunsets, grab a drink and relax. Well worth the trip, arrive an hour or so before sunset.

“Fun! Entertaining.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Great fun, artists and crafters selling their goods. Food and drink vendors. Musicians and entertainers all around you. Dogs walking tightropes, crazy cat man, pychics etc. Oh yeah and then there is the sunset, which is really beautiful in key west! This is a must do !

“You don't see the sun set in sea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

Don't expect to see the sun set in sea from Mallory Square. Instead, between Mallory Square and the sun, is another island. You can go there to see the sunset.

Mallory square is crowded at sunset and everybody is in a good mood.

“Nothing that great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011

We did not catch a sunset here, but as for shopping there is a good variety of things but really nothing special. Good way to kill a few hours in Key West if you want to be in a little touristy area.
