“Its what we do !”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

It's tradition, go to Key West, hang on Duval until late, have something quick to eat and try and do it again. But frankly, Duval is expensive, loaded with the types of over priced , tourist dive bars you can find in any tourist haven. The Key to Duval is finding the history. Visit Captain Tony's, find the Chart House, hit the Rum Bar for a tasting. But be aware , it's expensive and I'm sure Hemingway would roll in his grave if he knew what it cost to drink on his favorite street. It's become the Disney land for the Margaritaville attitude.

“Cute area of Key West!”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

Cute area for sure, lots of really neat little stores and love the style of the buildings. I thought it would be bigger but was still nice to walk through and check out. Was finally able to find a store with the Salt Life bumper sticker that I wanted! Definitely can't miss on your trip to Key West.

“Duval Street”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Duval Street and Mallory Square were great! We traveled by city bus from our resort and got off the bus at Caroline & Duval. We were told by a very friendly islander that Caroline's was a great place to eat, and he was right. Highly recommend Caroline's . Loved the outdoor atmosphere right on Duval and straight across from "Fat Tuesday's" what a great Daiquiri Bar. We are coffee lovers and wanted to try some Cuban Coffee so before strolling down Duval for the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square we went down Caroline street and found the "Cuban Coffee Queen". Great Cuban Coffee and sandwiches and friendly people. Highly recommend this place also. While you are there you can visit Mac's Sea Garden, great shop! We loved the trip so much we are going back in May 2014 and staying in Old Town. This time we plan on visiting more of the tourist attractions.

“Interesting, to say the least”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

We visited KW for the first time in October and of course a trip down Duval Street is almost 'mandatory'. We have mixed feelings...there were the obligatory tourist souvenier shops at the lower end graduating to mostly bars as we approached the Mallory Square area. Great if you are like bar-hopping (us--not so much, though). Great to walk once or twice for people like us...interesting and varied things to see. You know, I was a little surprised, though...Key West is touted as such a laid-back place, but you wouldn't know it from the tourists. I have never travelled to a place where the tourists are so rude! Was told by a couple shop owners that it is mainly the cruise-ship crowd that has the me-me-me mentality, though...but it was a shock to me. Still, if you are in Key West, take the trek.
