What Is It? Duval Street in downtown Key West is world-famous – the Village People sang about it in the hit song, “Key West,” with lyrics that sing: “take a walk down Duval Street, you never know who you’ll meet.”
Why Do It? It’s one of America’s best places for people watching and the perfect place to begin, or end, a day of sightseeing in the popular resort town. No matter what your age or tastes, you’ll find something to delight, from legendary eateries and bars like Sloppy Joe’s and Rick’s Café to The Bull and Whistle, and an endless array of shops and historic homes.
Good to Know: The Green Parrot, just off Duval Street, is a must-stop as the oldest bar on this island of bars. The landmark institution opened in 1890 and is still going strong with live music on the weekend as well as offering great drinks, bad art, pool, darts and pinball in a one-of-a-kind open-air tropical environment.
