Kimpton Key West hotels are near Duval Street
Other towns have their Main Street. Key West has Duval, a mile-long stretch of all-day happy hour, where you can shop for souvenirs, browse art galleries and cool off with something frosty and tropical at one of the many world-famous pubs like Sloppy Joe’s. Even foodies are not deprived; amid the tourist spots are some true culinary gems. And if you love historic architecture, handsomely preserved Bahamian and Spanish beauties line Duval Street all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.
After the sun sets, the party really revs up. Join revelers on the “Duval Crawl,” as you flit from one bar to the next, enjoying live music and meeting new faces. Or, if you want to take things slower, find one good dive bar and listen as locals swap stories about life at the end of the world.
