    for a tour on the train or the trolley do tour do I need to make a reservation ? if not where is the best place to pick up either for the tour since I would be coming from cocoa thank you

      No reservations but if you can make it on a weeknight, your trolley ride line will be much more manageable. 🙂

      If you ride the Holly Jolly Trolley, you’ll catch it at the parking garage. The other pickup is where the plaza meets St. George Street- that’ll be closer if you’re staying at Casa Monica or a B&B on the S end of town.

      If you’re riding Ripley’s Red Train, pickup is at Ripley’s and that train doesn’t stop- it’s a loop around the city and back. Enjoy!
