1. Hop Aboard the Old Town Trolley Tour
We suggest hopping onto the old town trolley tour as one of the first things you do when you arrive in Key West. Offering a full 90-minute narrated tour this trolley is a hop-on hop-off experience with twelve stops and over 100 points of interest. Do the entire loop once if not for the amount of knowledge you will receive but also for the sheer comedy that will ensue from the entertaining trolley drivers. Once you have familiarized yourself with the attractions and shops you want to stop at, hop-off at any one of the twelve stops. The trolley returns every thirty minutes to each stop and you can hop back on and continue your journey. Not just a convenient way to get around but a true island experience with the right amount of humor and information. Book online ahead of time and you’ll save a few dollars.
