It has plenty of shops, food, and bars. Wear comfortable shoes. The business' seemed to take precautions regarding social distancing and the like albeit in a laid back way. Some people following precautions, some just walking around with no masks and not distancing at all. That was at times irritating.

There were a lot of art galleries and not a lot of restrooms. Likely you'll need to go to a place and purchase something to use one. We went to Margaritaville, snagged drinks (strong ones🥴) and used theirs. Most others like Walgreens and CVS would say some bull like due to covid they weren't operational. More likely don't have the staff to upkeep or don't want to deal with it now with current climate.

We were there for like about 3 hours or so just haphazardly going into whatever locations we wanted to. Real chill vibe which is in alignment with the whole place.

There's a $15 drink served in a whole pineapple at a place near jungle cafe (can't recall the name as it wouldn't show up on trip advisor). You can have alcohol in it or not. $5 refills of you can hang on to the pineapple 😂. Yummy and refreshing.

If you go to key West, you have to go to Duval Street. It’s a mile long and goes from the Gulf of Mexico and Mallory Square to the Atlantic Ocean and the Southernmost Point. If you are a walker, it’s a piece of cake to do. This is the Main Street in Key West and there are over 200 bars and restaurants, including the famous Sloppy Joes (open all day and worth a stop in for the bands playing and the show is on stage as well as in the audience around you!). But there are also a ton of shops scattered in between the food stops and hotels. If you are on Duval and want to go back to your hotel and you are not much of a walker, there is a shuttle service that is free from 8:00 am to midnight every day. Bus comes every fifteen minutes. It is called the Duval Loop. It goes up one block to the north of Duval on Simonton Street and goes back on the south of Duval. Find out where the 17 stops are once you arrive - our hotel was half a block from stop 12 and we used this shuttle everyday to get back and forth to the waterfront. Parking on Duval and at waterfront is impossible and expensive ($4/hr) so use this shuttle!

I’m hesitant to leave such a good review so it will stay a secret. Duvall is a special and unique place for sure. There’s music coming from everywhere and I can’t count the number of times I just struck up a conversation with a stranger, everyone has a story and it’s like going to another country where they do whatever they want. We’ve always felt very safe at all hours, sunsets at Mallory are always a hit, and the restaurants, bars, and shops are just odd enough to be one of a kind jewels all on their own. Every bar has a history, or at least a tall tale. Everyone we met were very nice, no one cares what’s you do and it’s as far from pretentious as can be. Best people watching this side of Venice beach, haha.

It was our 1st and last visit. The street is fill commercial stores (tshirsts and other souvnirs for tourists), too expensive restaurants for the quality of the food and bars serving drinks all day util 4pm.

We had benedict eggs in a restaurant called Bagatelle for $50 US (include coffee).

We visited during Halloween weekend, with the pandemic. During the day Duval Street was very quiet. We were surprised to see so many of the shops closed and for rent, some entire strips were gone. All of the big players are still there from Margaritaville, Sloppy Joe’s, Hard Rock Cafe, Fogarty’s the Bull and whistle… There wasn’t much outdoor dining, a few bars with some outdoor tables.
After sunset we saw big bouncers at the bars checking IDs and limiting occupancy. Many were waiting on the street to get inside.

Regardless of whether you're into social scenes or not, I can't recommend staying as far away from Duval Street as you can during the Covid pandemic. The whole place is just a disaster. People walking around without masks, packed bars overflowing with people without masks or social distancing. It's a mess and Key West's whole "you must wear a mask" campaign is just a joke. We stayed fair away from this mess.

We went during the month of February for four days and could not have had a better experience cruising Duval Street in Key West. There are tons of interesting shops with very creative merchandise, art, and clothing. A local told us there are 350 bars in Key West and no doubt many of them are located here on Duval Street. We checked out many of them personally. Each offers an individual personality and many had great live music. We had delicious food and creative drinks at many places. It is wonderful to be able to just walk around everywhere. Highly recommend cruising Duval St on foot.

Anyone touring Key West should take a walk down Duval Street. It's the main drag in Old Town Key West and is loaded with tourist shops and bars. The time to go for families is after sunset, (during the Winter months), before things start to get rowdy with people spilling our of the bars and onto the street. The street even sports a Gentlemen's Club, (with the appropriate signage advertising what you can find inside, cover your children's eyes), You can get all the usual chach chies found in any sea side towns catering to tourists, usually cheap quality and very expensive.

An amazing place to visit and a beehive of activity. There are tons of bars that are reasonably priced and there is also some decent shopping along the strip as well. This is a must visit for Key West even if you are not a drinker as you can just have fun observing the characters and performers who on the sidewalks. Be prepared to be shocked as you never know what you might see. It can get a little crowded but I have always felt safe and have always enjoyed it. I try to go there at least once a year. I highly recommend it for someone looking for a place to have loads of fun.

If you can ride a scooter or bike this would a great place to visit as parking is very $$$. You can scooter/bike around or walk if you possible. But definitely a place to go! This is one of our every night visits to just walk down the street and stop to see the Sunset in Mallory Square and then enjoy dinner!
