With a tip of the hat to the Beach Boys, in Key West there are several ways to get around. By foot, automobile, scooter, bicycle, taxi, and electric car/cart thingies. All of them can be rented; well not the by foot but you get my point. Many of the locals got around by bicycle to and from work on some uniquely decorated bikes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen bicycles with cup holders or a child’s seat that was in front of you before. Mentioning bicycles, you could also (for a sum of $5 a minute – what?!?) get someone to pedal you from one point to another. We did a lot of walking – easily around 4 miles a day – and rented some bicycles. The bike rental prices ranged from $7 to $15 a day and they are all coaster bikes, which really threw me off for a moment or two when I tried to break by squeezing the handlebar ferociously until I remembered to pedal backwards.
Great exercise and cheap way to get around and see the area!
