Feeling adventurous? Call the Monkey Bus - a locally owned company who will take you anywhere on Anna Maria island with a special flair. With a quick phone call, you can zip around town with the wind in your hair and a smile on your face. 

As the sun sets, why not catch a ride on the island's iconic Trolley? With many stops along the island it is easy to hop on and off as you explore our little slice of paradise.
