You need to visit here at least once when you are in Key West, walk along the wharf, stop and have a drink at one of the many bars or restaurants along the port. There are many opportunities for people watching and lots... More

What a nice area. Tons of little shops right in the area here and the scenery is absolutely worth a visit in itself. The boats and docks, views, shops, and food all make this such a nice little area to explore. Not sure that a lot of people take the time to visit or explore this area unless they arrive... More

Great view of the seaport and the history of Key West economy. Visit the Schooner Wharf Bar for food and drink, sometimes live entertainment.

The Key West historic seaport is a true treasure. Most visitors may miss this part of Key West because it is just a little bit away from Duval Street. The scenery,the people, the restaurants, boats and docks are true Key West. This is one of my favorite places in all of the island

We took our Coffee Con Leche from Cuban Coffee Queen and wandered through the seaport. There are lots of interesting little shops and restaurants - even a pool hall with a great view of the harbor. Everyone we came across was friendly. There was a great laid back feel to this area; very different from the high energy feel of... More

Grab your coffee and watch the early morning unfold or, a wine, and watch the sunset. Just beautiful and it's all for you, free of charge.
