How to get around in Key West?

Key West is a small, island city and compact enough to explore on foot. Most of the popular attractions are likely to be just a brief stroll from your hotel. If you don’t want to walk everywhere, here are other ways to get around in the city.

Cycling

Cycling is an interesting way to explore Key West. Many bike shops rent bikes at affordable rates and deliver them to your hotel for your convenience. Several hotels also carry their own fleet of bikes, so check for availability at the hotel where you stay.
