Ease of Transportation

While your first thought will be to rent a car or to simply drive your own, we advise against this. Sure, you might think that it makes everything a little more convenient, which it will, but think of everything you will miss! First of all, most things you might want to do are fairly close to your condo, and getting out and walking to some of these venues will offer you a beautiful view of the area! If you simply climbed in your vehicle and drove off, you would miss so much! With that being said, some areas are a little far for a walk and if that’s the case, then we have plenty of modes of transport for you to choose from!

Siesta Trolley

The Siesta Trolley offers you and your group a unique experience with guided tours of the city on an incredible trolley bus! There is no need to worry about parking, as they will drop your group off where you ask and pick you up when you are ready to leave. This tends to be a popular attraction for larger groups, but some smaller groups have found incredible times on these tours as well.
