Live Cam USA, Mallory Square Key West, Florida

Waterfront square with restaurants & shops, known for its nightly festivals to watch the sunset.

Mallory Square is the location of the “Sunset Celebration”, which is considered one of the main tourist attractions of the city. The Sunset Celebration involves hundreds of tourists who arrive each night to view the sunset. The celebration includes arts and crafts exhibitors, street performers, and food carts. It begins two hours before sunset, every day of the year.

In 1984, the city opened a pier right on Mallory Square. The decision was met with considerable opposition from people who felt it would disrupt the tradition of watching the sunset at Mallory Square. In response to this, the city passed an ordinance requiring cruise ships to leave port two hours before sunset, enabling them to return after sunset without an additional docking fee.
