89 Great Streets in the U.S.A.

Of the American Planning Association‘s (APA) 306 Great Places in America, 89 of them are designated as Great Streets. The balance of these places are either neighborhoods or public spaces. APA designated the Great Places in the years 2007-2019 and is currently working on releasing their winners for 2020.

Key West’s Duval Street is among the 89. We bring you this Great Streets List because Key West is embarking on a study and reimagining how to improve it’s own main street. We hope perusing this list provides for ideas on how to make our own great street – Duval Street – even better.
