Owner description: Welcome to Mallory Square where the fun starts and the sun sets. Everything Key West is famous for comes together in this one special place set on historic waterfront. Mallory Square is home to shops, restaurants, and many of the islands most popular attractions. Come for the day and stay into the night. There's always something happening in Mallory Square.

The first night we went down to see the sunset, there was a cruise ship in the way. Everyone had to squish onto a small bridge or in the restaurant area (I ended up in close company to a garbage can). The second night the next cruise ship parked a bit further down leaving us an unobstructed view of a gorgeous sunset. Best pics are taken when the sun is low and the clipper ships are at full sail. The entertainment is okay (sword swallowers, tight rope walkers, fire jugglers) plus a plethora of vendors. I will say the bathrooms were suprisingly clean although lacking in soap dispensers. There are cats and roosters EVERYWHERE on this island. I think I have more pictures of them than anything else!

Watching the sun set at Mallory Square is Key West tradition and should not be skipped. The sunset is not really the main feature here however, it is the congregation of circus acts, artists and those who don't fit into a category that is the main interest.

There is lots to see; incredible acrobats such as John, who proudly states that he is 54 years old, before amazing you with his acrobatic feats; I won't tell you what it is he does, but you won't be disappointed.

There is Mustafa, a singer/guitar player who says that NPR has named him the most well known busker in the world.

There is everything from fire baton twirlers to tightrope walkers to people who have their dogs walk tightropes to men who sit disguised with bundles of rushes and scare people as they walk past.

Just be prepared to be entertained and be prepared to tip liberally. Oh, and enjoy the sunset too.

Good place to people watch as the sun sets. Plenty of cheap eats, plenty of places to sit and watch the sun set. Lots of street entertainers.

If in Key West you have to see a sunset here at the square, well worth timing your day to see one. Oh by the way there is no charge to see one.
