The coach arrives in Key West around noon, then you can catch the trolley at a nearby stop and head out to enjoy the many tourist attractions and exciting street scenes of historic Old Town. The trolley cars look quaint but deliver a smooth, safe ride. The seats are comfortable, and wide-open sides let in the island breeze and give a great view. Live tour narration makes the ride interesting, and the trolleys run on a handy 30-minute schedule.
Visit the Southernmost Point, Ernest Hemingway’s House, The Mel Fisher Museum, or Mallory Square.
