The Basics

As Key West’s most famous stretch of road, Duval Street is a feature in just about every sightseeing tour on the island, including the Conch Train that makes a 90-minute loop past the island’s top attractions. Night owls won’t want to leave Key West without joining a Duval Crawl; pub crawl options range from the normal to the paranormal (haunted bar crawls), and typically include a beer or cocktail at several locations along the way, as well as a souvenir T-shirt.
