Mallory Square, Key West: 28 reviews and 55 photos
Mallory Square appears to be a cul de sac of brightly colored shops, food stands and the aquarium thrown in to round things out. But, like most places in Key West, it is an area rich in history and one with a lot of meaning for Keys residents.
Mallory Square was once the gathering place of pirates and, later, in a spirit of "not in my backyard" campaigning, the place for anti-pirate demonstrations. It was also used as the assembly point for US soldiers for 4 separate wars.
But Mallory Square is most known for the fabulous Key West sunsets that can be viewed from this point. Again steeped in history and tradition, many locals and tourists gather at Mallory Square at dusk to watch the sunset and to celebrate the end of yet another day in Paradise, as the locals put it. During this nightly sunset celebration, artists and street performers are on hand to witness the festivities.
