“Unless your a crazy partier, don't go”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

My first time there with my 17 year old son. Not what I expected. No matter where you go, there seems to be more and more disgrace and immoral people with the filthiest language ever. It's multiplied 1000% here. I wouldn't dare be caught there at night. I pray for the people that go and work here that they one day they will encounter what's true and real instead of all this foolishness and raunchy behavior. This island would be a jewel if it didn't have this street.

“Experience Duval Street”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

After the last few years Denise and I have experienced Key West several times. As we grow older the Key West experience grows on us as we see everyone around us down there let go of their inhibitions and "hang loose" outside of the Hawaiian Islands. With so many things to do there and lots of places to do them you can never ever go wrong. A great time for all.

“Why did I drive from Marathon to Key West? Not sure.”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I have no idea what the hubbub about Key West is. Maybe if you live in a bubble and have never been to any main street in the US, it would be cool. Maybe if you have an addiction to t-shirt and sunglass shops, it would be fun. Maybe if you want to drive around and look for parking spots while dodging chickens, it would be amusing. Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but I would have much rather checked out several other keys than Key West.

“Full of energy”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Duval street is the place to be at night. It runs from the Sunset pier all the way down to the Southernmost beach. So many shops, cafes, ice cream shops, bars and restaurants to choose from that you have to go several times. No matter what you like to do, you'll find something along this street.

“Duval- A melting pot of lifestyles”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Morning on Duval- My husband and I took our morning walks on Duval. Not crowded and a much different atmosphere from the night. Plenty of parking and a good time to shop the many lovely galleries.
Night on Duval- Much like New Orleans. Loud and a lot of partying. You can basically get what you seek. If you take your kids be prepared to have lengthy conversations about the sights.
Glad my hotel was not near Duval.
