Mallory Square - Attractions in Key West - Floirda
Key West was originally a bustling port, and Mallory Square offers lots of shopping, much of which has a hint of the sea about it. For instance, in the Shell Warehouse there are thousands of unusual items from the ocean. The Sponge Market features tons of unique gifts, souvenirs, and local objects of art, also from the ocean. This is a great place to experience the smashing sunsets, which everyday attract musicians and other performers who help celebrate the end of the day with you. Don’t let that put you off though; it’s still a cool place.
