Whether perched on bicycles—which can be rented for as long as a week—or mopeds, guests enjoy some traditional two-wheeled cruising as they follow the pavement's spoken directions to local beaches, art galleries, or ornate mansions. Couples can also take a spin in three-wheeled Scoot Coupes that come in bright hues of red, blue, yellow, or green. While one person handles the traditional moped steering bars, the other can supply the high-pitched "vroom vroom" sounds to keep dogs from giving chase.
