Transportation Options | Getting Around Indian Rocks Beach

If you just want to spend your time at the beach, enjoy some restaurants & pubs, or live music - then you don't really need a car. If you plan to visit theme parks, sports stadiums or other Florida attractions around the state, then a rental car will be necessary.
