Mallory Square is a bike-friendly spot and you can simply relax and watch the entertainment from jugglers, artists, and musicians.

Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum
Ride your bike down Whitehead Street and stop at the Key West Shipwreck Treasure Museum, where 400 years of shipwreck salvage is put on display. The structure of this museum is designed to replicate a 19th-century warehouse and it is part of the allure of this treasured museum. Get to see actual salvaged artifacts from Isaac Allerton’s 1856 wreck, performances of shipwreck and salvage operations, as well as films depicting the ship wreckage history in Key West.
Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory
Housing 60 species of butterflies, with an array of birds and turtles, the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory is a representation of the beauty of nature right on the island. The ride to this conservatory offers a scenic view that is made better by the destination. The greenhouse offers a guided tour filled with informative pointers about the different species of butterflies and elements of nature. You can stop at the Conservatory on Duval Street before heading to lunch and make it an exciting afternoon trip.
Truman Little White House Museum
How iconic would it be to ride a bike to the white house? Well, it may be impossible but, you can ride your bike to a former presidential residence in Key West. The 33rd president of the United States, Harry Truman Little, used this property as his winter residence during his presidency. Since vacated by the former president, the house has been transformed into a museum filled with artifacts, furniture, and other memorabilia of Truman Little’s time in the White House.
Audubon House & Tropical Gardens
Another iconic former residence is the Audubon House & Tropical Gardens, which previously housed Captain John Huling Geiger and his family.
