    Tell them to take the taxi.....beach time is too valuable to waste time just to save the small fee for the taxi ride.

    However, given the topic of this thread.....too bad the trolley isn't an option.

    They need to do this, by having everything built outside of the city, downtown is a ghost town at night.

    If the cruise ships aren't in port, there are shops that weren't even open. The Gelato place was closed before 10pm.

    When you allow the outline areas to build up, your hurting your downtown. A trolley could get traffic back to downtown.

    I was in town the other nite with my neighbor for pizza at a hidden gem of a place. That's another post all together, but the tracks are a pain. Many streets are dug up with the rails going in inbeded in concrete. No one is around as the streets are blocked and in some places difficult to walk down. We talked to the owner of the little we went to and she told us many of the businesses are losing a lot of money. People just can not get to them. She did say that the first trolley is to start running on the second week of December 2012 for the Christmas Season. I will believe it when I hear the bell. It would appear the many of the streets will be pedestrian and trolley only. I will see how long it takes for a person to get hit by the trolley. . . . We talked about the reason behind this and we could not come up with a logical reason to spend the money as it was designed. Seemed to us that a better plan / route could have been designed. . . . Anyway, that's our thoughts on it. . .

    I think the trolly will be exciting and a big bonus for the shops. The cruiz folks will love the idea of being able to be taken directly to the shops but I think many would rather be taken to the beach. Still good for some night shopping. Getting on a trolly during beach time is a no no in my book.
