Mallory Square, Key West

Mallory Square, Key West (must see)

Fronting on world-famous Sunset Pier, Mallory Square is known for the lively crowds that gather in the evening to watch the sunset and marvel at the wacky street performers, whom some have been there for many many years. The performers range from a one-man band and fire jugglers to world famous Kwinci, who swallows a 40-inch balloon and walks barefoot on broken glass (you have to see this to believe it). Then there's Warren Lee, the Sophisticated Swindler. No trip to Key West is complete without seeing Dominique and his Flying House Cats. Somehow, he has trained his cats to jump through hoops of fire and other, very un-cat-like tricks. Bring cash and if you stop to watch, tip these performers – they deserve it. Surrounding are many delightful shops and craftsmen selling their wares, and you can get some nice food and drinks all coupled in with the spectacular view of the sun sinking into the Gulf of Mexico – a photographer's delight.

Why You Should Visit:
It can get very crowded near sunset time as it's quite a popular destination, but the people-watching is fun as you have all kinds of walk of life. The breeze is usually pretty refreshing even on hotter and humid days due to the oceanfront location.
