Duval Street in Key West
Key West, Florida

Key West is known for its open-air bars and around the clock partying, and most of that action is along Duval Street. It runs from the port area (where cruise ships disgorge a thousand people at a time) to the "southernmost point" bouy, beach and hotel. Some of the places are famous - Sloppy Joe's has a legitimate connection to Ernest Hemngway and his drinking buddy Joe, and 801 Bourbon is noted for its drag revues.Wikipedia: Key West, Florida on Wikipedia.

The west end of Duval Street is lined with noisy bars. The original Sloppy Joe was drinking buddies with Ernest Hemingway. Despite having a cruise ship in port, the street was relatively uncrowded the day I was there.

I encountered a few Spring Breakers on Duval Street, but nowhere as many as I had been led to expect. It might have been different after dark.

The notorious 801 Bourbon Bar is famous for its drag queen cabaret. Not much to look at in the daytime, it is a lively scene after dark, both inside and outside.

Duval Street is very lively on its west end near the harbor, and also at the other end near the Southernmost Buoy. Along its central section it is much quiter.
