The square has street performers and is right by the sunset pier. We just watched all the activity from our balcony at the Ocean Key.

We had our hotel shuttle drop us off and enjoyed watching the street performers entertain the crowd. The star of the show is the amazing sunset.

Mallory Square is located behind the aquarium and is the place to be for sunset...and they know it! The have entertainment in the square leading up to sunset. Make sure to arrive before sunset so you can get a spot along the water for pictures.

It's a gathering point to watch the sunset. There are street performers, my favorite is a Key West local who trained cats to jump through burning hoops and walk on a tight rope and arts and craft vendors.
