These are just a few of the many neat shops that can be found on or around Duval street in downtown Key West. Most of the ones listed below happen to be ones that Dave visited. They are by no means the only ones worth seeing.
One neat thing about these shops that you can’t find in most small US cities is that many of them are open late into the night. Most are open until at least 10pm. Key West is also home to many different artists.
