Can't do Conch Train or Trolley...

In spite of the raves about these two ways to get familiar with KW, there is now way I can get my SO to partake in either one. Beside the Pelican Path, are there other good guides for self-guided tours?

It's our first trip and we are 50 somethings...if that matters.

Thanks,

D

Will she ride a bike and do a self tour of the Island? Eaton Bikes has nice rides if that is something you both would enjoy. Other than bikes, Conch Train or Trolley, not sure how your going to get the feel of the Island your looking for. It's Key West, you will find a way.

Are you joined at the hip ?? LOL

Why don't you take the trolley while your SO hangs out by the pool, checks out some art galleries or does something else that really interests him/ her while you get familiar (and learn a little history, too) with Key West ??

What suzeeka said - go without if you want to do one of them. They are nice tours.

We won't judge.

We will point or we will laugh, but not both. To point AND laugh is just mean.

I agree...go by yourself! We have been to Key West several times, and we enjoy those tours. They take us around several parts of the island we normally wouldn't go on our own. We saw a few people laugh and point, but who cares? It's Key West!
