Historic Tours of America Offers Locals a Free Ride, Once Again Proving it Cares About the Key West Community

Online PR News – 24-March-2010 – – Key West, FL -- Key West locals can now accompany their friends and family on sightseeing tours of the city, without paying a dime. The Old Town Trolleys and Conch Tour Train are hugely popular Key West tours, loved by all ages as the best way to see the sights while in town. Now, with the Hometown Pass program, locals can join in the tours for free, and not miss a thing. For every paying guest on the tours, a local resident can hop aboard as a guest of Historic Tours. All they have to do is show their Hometown Pass, which is free too.

Historic Tours of America has been an integral part of the Key West Community for decades, helping to preserve the history of this fascinating island. Guests on both the Train the Trolley get much more than a comfortable seat as they take in the sights. Drivers are great sources of local history and lore, and they have pride in their ability to entertain their passengers as they navigate the narrow streets of Old Town. Passengers will learn about notable historic events, attractions, and homes as they ride along comfortably listening to the carefully researched presentation given by their professional, friendly guide.

Guests on the Old Town Trolley will enjoy a thorough tour of the city at their own pace. They can hop on and off the train any time throughout the day, or they can take the tour straight through. The entire tour takes an hour and a half from beginning to end, and every moment will be entertaining as well as educational. Even locals who take the tour say they learned things they never knew about their own city.

"The Old Town Trolley tour was great- I saw so much and learned so much about Key West and it was fun too! Back on the ship, I had so many stories to tell my friends who hadn't taken the tour" says Janice Miskewicz of West Orange, NJ. "I came to Key West on a cruise ship, so I only had part of a day to explore the island, and I never would have been able to see all this if it weren't for the wonderful trolley tour I took!"

One of the great things about these Key West Tours is passengers' ability to get off the trolley at any stop, explore the area, then get back on when the next one came by. You can tailor your experience to how you want to see the city. Some people take the tour, then go back on their own to further explore certain places they'd seen while riding the trolley.

Historic Tours of America's Hometown Pass is good on the Old Town Trolleys, the Conch Tour Trains, as well as at some local attractions and the Key West Walking Tour.
