No, but there is a bus stop right at the entrance to BWK.

Depending on when you arrive in Key West parking does not need to be difficult. I always park in the lot at the corner of Simonton and Greene Streets. Get to the lot before 10 AM and you should be fine. There are other lots to choose from by going down Greene Street away from Duval Street. Read the signs. Many have gone to a sliding scale fee. It depends on how full they are and how much they think they can get from you. It could be as cheap as $10 or as much as $30 for the day. No in or out. From BWK it should not be a problem to get parked by 9:30 AM. If you really want to park for free. Find out what hotels the trolley stops at and park in the hotel lot.

Just back from Boyds, $400 for 3 nites and 4 folks. Nice park and seafood markets within walking distance. We also took in the Key Deer area and checked out Bahai Honda State Park. We stopped at St. Augustine on the way home which was interesting.

Just got back. Great trip except for parking. Our B&B was fantastic. Two blocks from Duval Street. Only issue is parking. Even the parking meter guy gave me wrong information. DO NOT PARK in a spot that says "Resident Parking". All others are fair game. You may need to to have DW stand in an open spot if you happen to drive by one in order to catch it the trip around the block.

The Trolly is $19.00 for a day pass. They must have added a stop as they stop right at the bouy now. Be prepared to stand in line for the photo op of you at the bouy.

Stop at the Butterfly Conservatory. Very nice, thousands of butterflies abound while you walk through the conservatory

Very pretty drive down. We stopped at several RV campgrounds to view and found some at over 50% vacant. Doubt you would be be hard pressed to find a spot. They are pricey.....

The "Bistro" outdoor cafe at the Westin hotel is the place to get a table and seating for the sunset view. Be there at least an hour before sunset.

Watch out for the "Snake Guy" on Duval Street if you do not like snakes. He is streetside for photo op$$$ so you may want to cross the street and walk around, (like me!). Those suckers are well over 6' long and ugly!!!!

We were just in Key West. Stayed a week at Fiesta Key and saw the Green Flash at sunset. We spent two nights at Boyd's and bicycled all over Key West from Boyds. It was a great way to see KW. Boyd's is cozy and expensive, but nice people, and location, location, location. Enjoy...you won't see more beautiful water!

And the Tiki Bar is a great spot. Get there for the first round & it's free.

Was the green flash from the bottom of a Heineken bottle or the beautiful water?
