When you travel to Key West, a Key West scooter rental is a practical way to maneuver around the island. Scooters can maneuver in and out of traffic and are great for parking in tight spots. Where can you take your scooter rental in Key West? The short answer is practically anywhere, including the famous Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, but let’s look at some specific ideas.
Key West Lighthouse Museum
This historic lighthouse was built in 1847. Originally, it guided sailors safely from the sea using 15 oil lamps. Sadly, it’s no longer a functioning lighthouse, but visitors can climb the steps to the top to get an unparalleled view of the city and ocean. Admission to the lighthouse includes entrance to the former keeper’s quarters which now serves as a museum.
Conch Tour Train
Some may think the Conch Tour Train is a little touristy, but it’s one of the best ways to learn about Key West and its history. The train began operating in 1958. Riding the train, you will get an overview of approximately 100 points of interest, including highlights of the conch-style architecture. The “engineers” will also provide you with commentary on city legends as added entertainment along the ride.
Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center
The Eco-Discovery Center has more than 6,000 square feet of exhibits for guests to interact with and enjoy. The Center is near Fort Zachary Taylor State Park and provides a variety of interactive exhibits, including a satellite map of the Keys. The real draw to the Center is the Living Reef exhibit, which features a 2,500-gallon reef tank filled with tropical fish and living corals. Perhaps the best thing about the Eco-Discovery Center is the cost to visit; it’s free!
Key West Cemetery
The Key West Cemetery provides evidence of the community’s lively spirit. The tombstones feature quippy epitaphs such as “I Told You I Was Sick” or “At Least I Know Where He’s Sleeping Tonight.” The rocky soil made digging impossible, so the tombs are above ground here. The best time to visit the cemetery is in the morning because the southern sun causes issues for visitors in the afternoon.
Harry S. Truman’s Little White House
Presidents have retreated to Key West since Ulysses S. Grant first visited in 1880. Harry Truman and his wife Bess called the Little White House home on the island. Truman’s rumored to have despised Washington, so Key West became his sanctuary. He spent 175 days of his presidency on the island, and high-ranking officials visited him at the Little White House to discuss legislation, and now the restored home is open to the public as a living museum.
