“Something for everyone on Duval”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a blast walking Duval window shopping and people watching a few times. There are many bars and restaurants to suit anyone's needs as well as shopping from local trinkets to coach and express.

There are some homeless folks and various street type performers vying for a $1.

You can generally get away with walking around cocktail in hand as long as its in a solo cup. Keep in mind it is still officially illegal-- not an open container city.

Many of the bars/ restaurants have music you can hear from the street if you want to stand and listen without going in. A few places tend to attract crowds out front like sloppy joes, Irish Kevin's, margaritaville, coyote ugly and Fat Tuesday to name a few.

If in key west, you have to walk Duval!

“Lots of shops flogging cheap tat”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

If T shirts with slogans that would make Homer Simpson blush are your thing, then Duval Street is your place. Don't miss the bar half way up on the left with dollar bills plastered all over the place. There is a guy with a geetar who manages to murder all the southern classic rock songs with stunning aplomb. We left before my brain burst.

Walk a couple of streets to your left and admire some of the best southern US architecture around the place would be my advice.

“What an experience!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Duval street is one of those centerpiece attactions here in Key West. Best at night, you'll find everything from tourists, to fantastic little eateries, drag queens, bars, and everything in between. It's a safe environment and you will feel safe, but its almost a 'carnival' atmosphere from the standpoint of, you'll see so many different cool things!
