The Best Spots to Take Your Key West Scooter Rental
Navigating Key West while riding a Key West scooter rental is one of the best parts of visiting the marine-centred island. Key West is popular for its bike-friendly communities, beaches, and mostly water-based activities, but it offers other sights and sites that make a trip to the island completely worth it! Beyond snorkeling, reefs, and other water-themed activities, there’s so much more to do and see in Key West. And what better way to explore than on a scooter, like other tourists and locals. From historic sites to bustling locations, here are the best spots to take your Key West Scooter Rental.
Ernest Hemingway’s House
Lodged on or close to Whitehead Street? Take your scooter on a ride down to Ernest Hemingway’s House and Museum. The prolific writer lived and wrote on Key West Island between 1931 and 1939. The home-turned-museum holds artifacts and historical/antique pieces from the time Hemingway spent in Key West.
Mallory Square is the go-to spot for daylight shopping and window shopping, but it really comes alive in the nighttime. Ride your scooter down to the Square just before dusk to catch the beautiful sunset, and a lot of celebration. The Key West Sunset Celebration is held nightly at Mallory Square. Imagine partying every night with visitors from all over the world, watching magicians, jugglers, clowns, psychics, local musicians and artists doing their thing, and enjoying different cuisines from food vendors – a perfect night out!
Audubon House & Tropical Gardens
Formerly home to Captain John Huling Geiger and his family, this grand mansion was restored and converted to a historic museum. Named after artist John James Audubon, and featuring several of his artworks, the Audubon House is furnished with antiques, several of which originally belonged to the Geiger family. Take your scooter out to visit this historic site and enjoy the feeling of traveling through time as you move across the halls.
Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park
During the Civil war and the Spanish-American war, this location was the nation’s southeastern coastline. A major renovation later and it is now a historic park on the southern edge of Key West. It is also the southernmost state park in the United States. At Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park, you can park your scooter and enjoy a picnic or just watch the waves on the beach.
Truman Little White House Museum
Take a trip down to Florida’s only presidential museum on your rental scooter. Harry S. Truman Little, the 33rd president, had this residence as his winter White House during his tenure. Now an iconic landmark filled with history, the house contains furnishing and memorabilia from Truman’s days in Key West.
Take a historic lesson or two, check out the busy buzz of mallory square, and wrap your day up at any fine-dining restaurant within proximity. Do remember to check your headlights if you plan on riding after dusk and avoid riding a scooter if you have been drinking.
