On the road again. Just can't wait to get on the road again. – Willie Nelson
On Anna Maria Island, there are plenty of ways to get on the road again. Here are four to try:
1) Travel on foot: You may not feel like walking the entire seven-mile-long island, but you certainly can tackle a section. For instance, browsing the shops along Pine Avenue is certainly doable on foot.
2) Ride the trolley: C'mon, and take a free ride on the Anna Maria Island Trolley. It runs daily from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., with dozens of convenient stops all over the island.
3) Feel like a kid again: The island is extremely bike-friendly. Two wheels are the transportation of choice for many visitors and locals alike. The trolley even features bicycle racks. If you don't have your own bike, borrow one from Beach Bums rental shop.
4) Be a beach bum: Speaking of Beach Bums, the rental store offers not only standard bicycles but also surrey bikes, kayaks and golf carts like the one my friend Diana and I drive in the above video. You can also rent beach, water sports and baby equipment. Check out the price list. Visit Beach Bums at 427 Pine Ave., or call 941-778-3316.
