Full description
Climb aboard Key West’s conch train for a 75-minute sightseeing tour of the tropical paradise. The train departs from Front Street Depot and loops through the Old Town to end back behind the Depot at Mallory Square. Stock up on ice cream and homemade fudge at the Depot to eat on board during your tour. You can jump off at Truval Village to visit the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum, Key West Lighthouse, Southernmost Point, and Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. Climb to the top of the observation tower at Key West Shipwreck and Treasures Museum. Travel back in time to the days of hand-rolled cigars at Mallory Square. And stroll through the Cayo Hueso y Habana Historeum. Back on the conch train, learn about Key West characters, such as Mel Fisher, whose lifelong search for 2 sunken Spanish galleons finally turned up treasure worth USD 450 million. Jump off to enjoy great shopping on Duval Street, and fine dining at restaurants such as Hog's Breath Saloon, Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville or the Hard Rock Café.

What a wonderful way to see all of the highlights of Key West for a first time visitor. Bob, our guide was friendly, cheerful, and knowledgeable. Well worth the cost of a ticket. Being able to ride all day was a pleasant surprise. We went the entire route, had lunch, then boarded again to revisit some sites.

We booked a trip in the Conch train mid-afternoon as a quick way to enjoy the Key West/Duval street area. We wanted to learn more about the history of this amazing place. Our conductor was friendly and helpful, with lots of facts about architecture, historical, commercial, and social information thrown in during our ride. We greatly enjoyed the 90 minutes we had and appreciated the kid-friendly atmosphere too. We boarded at the main station, but you can pick up the ride at 2 other spots if you wish to hop on or off. We would do this again with friends and family to introduce them to the area. Thanks for a great time!
