Key West Historic Seaport - A Can't Miss Key West Attraction, Soon To Be Improved

Constantly improving, the Key West Seaport includes famous waterfront restaurants and bars, retail stores, museums, fishing and sailing charters, a large variety of historic homes, and Mallory Square.  Until 15 years ago, it was known as the 'Key West Bight' and was a working fishing harbor where the shrimp boats docked and fishermen brought in their catch. Today over 150 slips in the harbor provides docks for private yachts and charter boats. Catch a sunset cruise, catamaran, dive boat, fishing charter and gaze at Key West's old wooden schooner sail boats.

Stroll along the meandering wooden walkway on Key West's famous harbor that winds from above the foot of William Street to Greene Street. Enjoy a large variety of unique island shops, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind bars. Grab an ice cream or piece of Key Lime Pie. Check out the numerous art galleries, and a few antique shops. Grab a Cuban Coffee at one famous vendors such as the Cuban Coffee Queen. Be advised, the caffeine content is high, but just what you may need to enjoy more time exploring seaport.

When the sun gets ready to set, head over to Mallory Square for the famous nightly sunset. Here you'll find street performers like a tight rope walker, magic and comedy shows, a sunset clown, An escape artist, Bluegrass banjo picker, and more. There is always a festival of buskers, and you can always look forward to something unique and entertaining to see. But the biggest show of all is the sunset, slowly sinking into the ocean behind the dock. Key West's Historic Seaport is a living piece of history that is constantly changing. It's definitely worth a visit!
