“World Famous Key West Street”
Duval Street is a famous downtown commercial zoned street in Key West, Florida, running north and south from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. From shore to shore, the street is just over a mile in length. It is named for William Pope Duval, the first territorial governor of Florida. Duval Street was designated a “Great Street” in 2012 by the American Planning Association. American Planning Association, Great Places, 2012 The beautiful Bahamian and Spanish influenced Victorian Mansions of Duval Street have been well preserved through local preservation efforts starting in the 1960s.
It’s a street to walk up and down on for sure, tourist spot. However, all the stores sell the same thing: catch phrase t shirts and souvenirs. There are not many local shops like other small tourist towns, or even galleries. There are a few places to eat. I think it is better to walk up and down the side streets and look at the architecture, catch the Hemingway house, lighthouse, or other exhibits, and see the chickens wandering or fruits that are being sold.
Great place day or night! Shopping, music, food! If your looking to drink and party then this is your place at night! Shopping and food best during the day. Make sure you come prepared with a map to guide your way and decide on parking, good walking shoes, sun protection, and a camera. This is a very open minded area and everyone will feel welcomed. You will not be disappointed!
