  key west laundromat
by doug48

key west all in all is a very safe town for tourists but with all tourist towns in florida you should take certain precautions. watch your valuables and beware of pickpockets. on duval street on weekends and during festivals you will encounter obnoxious drunks. at night stay in the well lighted tourist areas because there is a possibilty of being mugged on dark side streets. violent crime is rare in key west but there is a lot of property crime. pictured is a laundromat on fleming street. a number of years ago i was washing clothes here and left the place to get a beer while my clothes were washing. i returned later to find that some bum had stolen my laundry.
