Set Your Own Schedule and See the Real Key West
What’s the Best Way to See Key West?
There are lots of things to see and do in Key West, and something for everyone. To take it all in, sometimes you need to slow down and spend a few hours. For example, when you go exploring the beach and broad park lands at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park.
At other times, it’s fun to zip along, like when you are cutting across the island to cruise the long stretch of Roosevelt Boulevard along Smathers Beach or trying to make it over to the After Deck bar at Louie’s for sunset happy hour. And wherever you are going, whatever you are doing, you always want to have fun getting around America’s Caribbean Paradise.

Get On Island Time and See the Real Key West
Key West is definitely a place you need to see your own way, in your own time. You do not want to be caught up in a mad rush all day long, or trapped in the routine of a guided tour. That’s a sure way to miss the real spirit of Key West. And there is a whole lot to explore beyond Duval Street and the main tourist blocks around Sloppy Joe’s Bar and Mallory Square. The hustling, bustling party atmosphere is fun, but there is far more to Key West than hotels and resorts, bars and restaurants. Here are some alternatives:
- It’s wonderful to spend time in the suburban neighborhoods along the southeast shoreline where you can take a look at typical Key West family homes.
- Cruise the quieter streets and stop for a picnic at one of the city parks where local families spend their free time and kids play soccer and baseball.
- Take in the school yards and playgrounds to get a feel for Key West from the local kids’ perspective. Great if you have kids with you.
- Find the tucked-away treasures like Rest Beach and the Key West Artisan Market.
Arcimoto – The New Island Ride
Being able to really explore the island this way, at your own pace, place, and time, is why it’s really great to have some transportation when visiting Key West. But you don’t want the bother of a rental car. Vacation time is not the time for a bunch of paperwork, then fighting traffic and searching for parking. You need something that’s nimble and maneuverable when checking out the historic architecture in the tight streets of Old Town, powerful enough to merge with the traffic across the bridge to Stock Island for lunch at the Hogfish Bar & Grill, and wide open to the tropical breeze for pure enjoyment. Silent, so it is easy to chat while you ride, comfortable and safe so you can relax, and really cool so…well, just because.
Arcimoto Key West is introducing the Arcimoto FUV to the island so visitors and locals alike have a great new transportation option that is practical, environmentally friendly, and a whole lot of fun too. The FUV, or Fun Utility Vehicle is an electric-powered, reverse-trike design 3-wheeler from Arcimoto, an innovative Oregon company that has been working to perfect zero-emission, city-friendly transportation for over 12 years now. The Arcimoto Evergreen is as much fun as a scooter, but perfectly stable, far safer, and a much more comfortable way for two people to get around the island. Reserve your FUV online today and experience the fun future of sustainable island transportation.
