“Buskers and sunsets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We got to see a lot of Mallory Square on this trip since we stayed at the Ocean Key and had a great view of Mallory Square and the Sunsets. We saw some of the same buskers we saw the year before. The Rick and Rocket (Bassett Hound) was just as funny. The guy on the bike (we call the screamer, since he seemed to have lost his voice from yelling for audiences) was great. Extremely funny. And a new one, we call the Rat Girl, since she had trained rats. Don't be cheap, give them 2 or 3 bucks after the shows.
Now I don't want to disallusion you on the sunsets but heres the truth: We missed two sunsets due to clouds or haze and got to see three others. We've seen lots of sunsets over the years. Honestly, Key West is not the best in the world, at least the ones we say this year and last year. However when you mix a lot of drinks with the sunsets you might disagree with me.
When we flew out of Key West at sunset we did see the most spectaculer sunset we ever saw. Solid orangy red colours all along the horizon.

“Never Boring!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This was our third year in a row visiting Mallory Square to enjoy the sunset celebration.

There is so much to watch that you could visit this place every night and see something different. Do not miss going here for lots of excitement and beautiful sunsets!

“My Bucket List”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Crazy as it seems, I saw this place in a movie ( Running Scared ) and since then I always wanted to do this, and it's definitely something everyone should do once.
