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.

If you've ever seen a sunset, there's nothing new at Mallory Square. Just lots of tourists. And street performers hoping for a generous tip. The only one worth seeing is the crazy cat guy. He is CRAZY...but what he gets those cats to do for a treat is pretty amazing. Go check it out once, just for the sake of saying you've been, but leave before sunset so you can find a table at a restaurant before the crowd hits! It's a mass exodus from the square once that sun is down.

We enjoyed Mallory square at sunset. The street acts are great to watch while waiting for the sun to go down.

Lively, entertaining and something for everyone. Take a stroll during the day and go back at night for the sunset and street shows. I found reasonably priced souvenirs and other items of clothing in the stores. Visit a restaurant or just window shop.

We enjoyed the juggler who put on quite a show just after sunset. While there were several other street acts at Mallory Square, his was by far the best.

A couple of points make this rating average for for me. First, the language of some of the street performers is not appropriate for children. There were two 11 year olds and an 8 year old traveling in our party. There is a diverse group exploring this area, but a performer drawing in children, I would expect some consideration. I would caution families with children to be aware of performers use of some blue language.
There are many interesting art pieces to be discovered in the Mallory Square area, which children and adults all loved.
Cruise ship departed while we were visiting, which was interesting.
The day we visited was cloudy, which did not lend itself to a sunset, but I am certain the sunsets would be spectacular.
Shops seemed to be more geared toward the cruise ship crowd. Not as charming as other places in Key West.
