Where to Take Your Key West Scooter Rental

Planning your Key West adventure is half the fun. And if you’ll be taking advantage of a Key West scooter rental, you’ll definitely want to know the best places to go. The good news is that most of the island is scooter-friendly, but you’ll need a few tips to make the most of your trip.


1. Skip the Main Roads


While you can access the entire island with your Key West scooter rental, you’ll want to stay off US Route 1 (the Overseas Highway). Keep your scooter on roads where the speed limit is low. Your scooter will not go faster than about 20 miles per hour (lower for some models), so keep that in mind while planning your trip.


2. Key West Cemetery


While you’ll no doubt want to hit some of the big tourist hotspots, like Duval Street, make time for some quieter destinations. It’s hard to get quieter than the Key West Cemetery! You can explore the historic tombs and check out some of the interesting tombstones here before venturing on your way.


3. Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum


Located just up from Mallory Square and all there is on Duval Street, the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum can be easily reached on your Key West scooter rental. Plan to spend at least an hour here touring the house and grounds and petting the cats, all of which are descended from Hemingway’s own felines.


4. Mallory Square


Mallory Square is definitely a popular destination, and it can be easily reached on a Key West scooter rental. This is where the cruise ships dock, but you’ll find that the space comes alive at sundown when performers, vendors, musicians, and tourists flock to it.


5. The Southernmost Point Buoy


How often have you been to one of our nation’s farthest boundaries? You can take your Key West scooter rental to the southernmost point in the United States right on the island. The Southernmost Point Buoy makes a colorful, fun addition to any island getaway. 


6. Duval Street


Okay, you knew this one was coming; Duval Street is the beating heart of Key West’s thriving party and shopping scene. You’ll find mainstays like Sloppy Joe’s here (where Hemingway himself used to drink), but you’ll also find lots of boutiques so you can get your shopping on, as well as eateries. As a note, Duval can be very crowded, so keep your speed down and watch for pedestrians. 


7. Sunset Cruises


Every day, cruises launch into the azure waters surrounding Key West that let you experience the glorious sunset from the sea. You can easily take your Key West scooter rental to the dock and then ride it back to your hotel or rental home afterward.
