Question Key West question

Does anyone know how close the Hemmingway House is to the ship when it is docked in Key West? We really want to see it and visit the Hemmingway Cats but I see the Conch Train tour does not stop anywhere, and it is the only port adventure that mentions this museum.

it's about a 10-12 block walk, around 20 minutes or so. The trolly does make stops and you can get on and off whenever and wherever you like. We walked, as it's a block off the shopping on Duval Street.

There are 2 trolley tours. The non-DCL city tour goes by it and you can get on and off. I have heard the other (which I think is the one DCL offers) has a different route and it is one that does not stop for you to get on/off.

We did the Old Town Trolley Tour (on our own) so we could get on/off at all the stops throughout the day. The kids were free and adults were about $28 each if I recall correctly.

If you book the trolley tour through DCL, you will just get a tour, you can't get off. If you want to do more exploring, then do it on your own.

we did some window shopping, wine tasting and brought a bottle back for our room, got Key Lime Pie at Kermit's, vistied Hemmingway's house and the Southern Most Point, all from the trolley. We would sometimes have to walk a few blocks to/from the trolley stop, but it was a great day.

Enjoy!
