Key West Bike Tours

One of the best ways to see Key West is to rent a bike and explore the island. There are bike tours available but since this is all about love and romance, our best advice is to rent bikes when you arrive and then get lost in Key West on your own. Get off Duval and tour the hidden alleys and lanes in historic old town and enjoy the beauty and color that decorates our island.  Romance can be found at every turn.  We promise. Some historic sites and popular hot spots to visit along the way are: Historic Seaport and Harbor Walk, Southernmost Point, Hemingway House, Key West Lighthouse & Keepers Quarters, Mallory Square, Smathers Beach, Higgs Beach and Fort Zachary Taylor.
