The Cool Destinations Miami to Key West Day Trip with Trolley Tour is one of the best Key West day trips because it includes a scenic drive down the full length of the Florida Keys on the Overseas Highway, an afternoon in Key West, and a trolley tour that adds to the fun of exploring the island. The open-air island trolley offers hop-on, hop-off convenience to make it easy to enjoy the shopping, dining, history, and highlights of tropical Key West.
Board a luxury touring coach with free transfer to the departure point right from your hotel door, then see the sights of the Florida Keys in air-conditioned comfort with a professional driver at the wheel. You can tour Key West in style aboard the Key West Trolley and play the afternoon away in America’s Caribbean Paradise with no worries about driving, parking, or the evening return trip to Miami.
From the south Miami suburbs across the Southern Everglades on U.S. Highway 1 all the way down the Overseas Highway through the tropical settings of the Lower Keys, you will be surrounded by spectacular scenery. Settle in to your soft, comfortable seat on the modern touring coach and enjoy panoramas that include emerald ocean vistas, sandy coves, and beautiful waterfront homes. Full-length viewing windows are perfect for grabbing a few photos, and a narrated guide program presented in high-fidelity audio brings the natural and human history of the Florida Keys to life.
The coach crosses more than 40 bridges as the road spans stretches of blue water between inhabited and uninhabited islands large and small. From Knights Key, just off the southern tip of Marathon Key, the world-famous Seven Mile Bridge soars over the crystal water with the Florida Straits on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other. The views from this engineering miracle are so dramatic that the bridge has been used for chase scenes in action movies like True Lies and several of the Fast & Furious films. It feels like the coach is flying low over the waves until the road touches land 6.79 miles later on uninhabited Little Duck Key.
Continuing into the Lower Keys, mangrove forests, tropical scrub, small island villages, and sportfishing marinas recall the days when the watery wonderland of the Florida Keys was mainly wilderness inhabited by hardy mariners and pioneering sport fisherman. A short time later, the tour arrives in Old Town Key West. It's right around noon, perfect for lunch in one of the city’s unique restaurants and a full afternoon of riding the fun and funky Key West Trolley around the island.
The trolley cars combine classic styling with modern amenities to deliver a smooth, comfortable ride, lots of fresh air, and wide-open views from every seat. Hop off at any stop to explore the city's highlights and hideaways. Hop back on to continue touring on your own timeline. The trolley offers easy access to Duval Street, Mallory Square, the Southernmost Point, the Ernest Hemingway House and other top Key West attractions plus museums, galleries, shopping, and dining. With 13 conveniently-located stops, riding the Key West Trolley lets you make the most of your Key West visit.
