    Another Key West "Must Do"!
    Love Mallory Square! This place is awesome, rich in history, one of the best views and great for the sunsets! Saw people enjoying fishing, great for shopping, eating ice cream, people watching and enjoying the sunset. The street performers in the evenings at "Celebration at Sunset" are fantastic, such a great experience!

    Traditional sunset celebration
    Every time I come to Key West I have to come to Mallory Square to celebrate the sunset. In the past, the crowd always applauded when the sun goes down. Not last night - but still a pretty sunset.

    Vibrant and magical sunset!
    Mallory Square is a true gem in Key West! The nightly sunset celebrations are a must-see. And the stunning sunset itself created an unforgettable atmosphere for us. If you're visiting, make sure not to miss it!

    Spectacular
    The place to be for a Key West sunset. There is so much going on in Mallory Square for the sunset celebration each and every night. Street performers, vendors, and mother nature’s spectacular performance. Do not visit Key West without at least one sunset in Mallory Square!

    Laid back and exhilarating at the same time.
    Mallory Square has an amazing variety of offerings. The street-performers are hilarious and the musicians dotted around the area give such a welcoming ambiance. The water views are hypnotizing. The vendors offer food, jewelry, fortune tellers, and art.

    The best sunset !!!
    One of the perfect places to see a sunset is Mallory Square. A place that is very busy after 5:00pm, small street businesses full of flavor and colours. In addition, there are a variety of art shows and entertainment.

    Sunset in paradise!
    Did the Mallory Square Sunset 23 years ago. The crowd was very pleasantI and excited as I was to watch the sun go below the horizon. We all cheered again when it slipped back into the ocean. It was great. The square is diffent than before. Much nicer friendlier and as always relaxed. You can't go all that way and not watch the sunset at least once.

    The night we visited Mallory Square the sunset wasn’t as spectacular but we enjoyed visiting the area. The number of people really builds until the sun goes down and while it was crowded it didn’t feel obnoxious or uncomfortable. Once the sun completely disappeared many people started clapping. It’s not something I would do every night in Key West but I am glad we got to experience it.

My review might be a bit off due to we visited the area during a rainstorm. We didn't get to see the sunset, none of the street performers were out, and none of the street vendors were there. It was pretty much an empty square. We still did the aquarium and treasure museum but most of what makes this area what it is hyped for is not available during rainy days.

Location is great as it’s near restaurants and the water, but would like to see different items for sale. Seems like every shop had the same things and all charged different prices for the exact same item. Would like to see more local items.

One of the best places to catch the sunset! My wife and I walked up like 30 minutes before sunset and were able to get a good spot. If there’s too many people here you can walk down the boardwalk for 5 minutes and get another good view, tons of space to get a good view of the sunset. They have street performers and a bunch of gift shops so it’s a great place for a walk.

Lots of shopping. Not crowded. Beautiful views. Live music everywhere. Safe must see sunsets. It is the place to be. Parking is a bit hard but there is a little known public parking ramp literally right in the heart of it. We parked in the ramp 3 times and walked everywhere.

The big draw here is the sunset. Though very nice, I've seen better. The quirkiness of the characters around the area - the physics, tarot card readers, performers - does make for a very interesting evening of people watching.

The sunset itself was beautiful. Was very disappointed in the lack of performers, entertainment and vendors. Many years ago, the time leading up to sunset was such an interesting and fun atmosphere. Sadly the Mallory Square Sunset "event" is no longer an "event".

Entertaining and beautiful experience to have with young children. Live music every night and entertainers keeping your little ones occupied. Not a lot of people when we traveled April 11-16 and it was great to walk around in the morning with hardly anyone around and as well as after sunset.

Parking is crazy expensive. Stunt show guy made inappropriate comments for kids. Bathrooms were the most disgusting I've ever seen.

Mallory Square an hour before sunset is a must! The street performers were exciting and friendly. The sunset......the pictures don't do it justice.
