Where Can I Drive My Scooter Around Key West?

11/6/2020

If you’re considering visiting Key West, there’s no more exciting way to take in the sights than on a scooter. 

 

One of the best places to visit in Key West is Old Town, and that’s great news because Old Town has a maximum speed of 20 miles-per-hour. Why is that great news you ask? Excellent question. The answer: It is legal to drive a scooter anywhere where the speed limit is 35-miles-per-hour or less. Hello Old Town! 

 

With so many cool things to see, you’ll want to make a list. Check out Southernmost Point, situated on the corner of Whitehead and South. If you’re afraid you’ll miss it, no worries. Southernmost Point is marked by a giant buoy, cemented into the ground. This giant boy, or buoy, marks the lowest latitude land of the contiguous North American States. It became a “big” deal way back in 1983 and has been bobbing along through thousands of hurricanes, and millions of selfies, ever since. 

 

While you’ve got that navigation’ feelin’, scoot on over Mile Marker O. If you’ve ever felt like you’ve come to the end of the road, no worries—you’re there now. Or, are you at the beginning of the road? Think about that as you zip your way over to Hemingway House. 

 

Hemingway House is the former home of Nobel, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Earnest Hemmingway, who lived in Old Town in the 1930s. The original home still stands on Whitehead Street and is now a museum. Meander through the home, as you hear about Hemingway’s adventures, and even meet a descendent while you’re there. Yep, you’ll find the family (and friends) of Snowball, Hemingway’s famous six-toed cat. 

 

It’s not only Old Town that allows scooters. When you’re ready to take in the incredible water views of Key West, head over to Zachary Taylor State Park and Beach. It’s been called the most beautiful beach in Key West. (It’s also pretty convenient.) You can tour trails, hang out on the rocky beach, or wander through the fort. You can grab some refreshments here, and even rent snorkels, to please the whole family. 

 

Scoot into the evening, and head over to world-famous Mallory Square. You might never see a more beautiful, or more celebrated, sunset. Each night at sunset, you can catch magicians, magicians, and even tightrope walkers, ready to entertain you as you celebrate the setting sun together. 

 

Grab a drink, bask in some conch fritters, and be glad you chose to experience Key West in scooter-style!
