August Break – Where I (Don't) Live

Key West house as seen from the trolley tour

One of the first things my husband and I did was ride the Hop On Hop Off Trolley around Key West. The trolley takes 90 minutes and allows you to see tourist sites, the beach, and homes of the elite all within the small 4.5 x 1.5 mile radius that encompasses Key West. We took our first tour of the city, on the trolley, the night of our arrival to Key West and shortly after we got off, it rained for a good hour while we ate. Luckily, for me, the rain clouds and lower sun made for some interesting shots while we were on the trolley, and, as it does in Florida, the rain didn't last long enough to ruin our travel plans or sunset viewing.

Have you ever taken a Hop On Hop Off trolley or bus tour while vacationing? Did you think it was worthwhile? If you haven't, would you consider doing it in the future?

P.S. Parking in Key West is atrocious! You will pay an insane amount ($20+) to leave your car anywhere for the day, assuming you can find parking to begin with. While the small size of Key West makes it incredibly walkable (especially in the old town), the hop on hop off trolley and conch tour can make it easier to get around. So, even if you've never considered doing a hop on hop off tour before, you may want to consider it if you go to Key West, simply because parking is such a mess down there.

P.P.S. I received two free tickets for the Key West Old Town Trolley tour in exchange for a review. The free tickets in no way influenced the review I provided here, today (and won't influence the more extensive one I write in the future). In fact, we enjoyed the trolley tour so much that we upgraded our tickets for the second day!
