As a legacy to Henry Flagler’s “railway over the sea” the Conch Tour Train has an in-depth view of the city’s most charming, historic and interesting attractions for 50 years...and counting. The Conch Tour Train took its inaugural ride in 1958 and has been offering tours throughout Key West ever since.
The Conch Tour Train departs daily from the Front Street Depot and ends at Mallory Square—one of Key West’s most famous spots. Throughout the tour, you’ll not only see the area’s well-known sights, you’ll also learn about the many residents, both past and present, that make the Conch Republic one of the world’s most unique places. See some of the spots Hemingway frequented and find out why Harry Truman spent so much time on the island. Listen to accounts of how pirates, Indians and wreckers lived, fought and worked, giving Key West its extraordinary reputation.
Experienced engineers are “Conchs” themselves, a term used to describe Key West locals who either grew up here or came for a visit and never turned back! You’ll become delighted and enlightened with amusing tales of days gone by and by interesting facts about one of America’s most talked about cities. You’ll also get an up-close view of some of the southernmost city’s lovely Victorian architecture and famous tin roofs.
The historic Conch Tour Train tour is 90 minutes long making one full loop through Old Town Key West, includes three stops, and highlights marvelous sights, stories and entertainment.
