Getting Around: Cool Ways to Ditch Your Car in St Pete/Clearwater

 

Let's face it, fighting traffic and searching for parking can be a major downer. Think outside of your box on four wheels and try these transportation alternatives! Because trolleys are adorable, any excuse to take a boat ride is a good one and who wouldn't want to sport a three-wheeled moped trike!? 

1 Ride the Trolley

Three different trolley lines will get you where you want to go with scheduled stops along their route: Jolley Trolley on Clearwater Beach, Suncoast Beach Trolley on all other beaches and Looper Trolley in downtown St. Pete. For a cost of $5 for a full day pass, hopping on and off is easy. Special tours also available.
