Distance from Palmetto to Pier?

Heading down in a few weeks and trying get a feel for what is where. I'll be staying at the Palmetto - how far is the Pier from there? Is there a shuttle if necessary? Thanks :)

It's not terribly far from Palmetto to the pier at Pier Park, but probably not "walkable" by most standards (i'm guessing a mile each way, maybe a little less).

There is a trolley (http://v2.baytowntrolley.org/routes/) if it works with your schedule. Looks like route 7 stops in your area (Palmetto Inn / Winn Dixie).

Thank you for the info. 1 mile each is very walkable for me so that is good news!

And since I have no planned schedule I'm sure the trolley will work just fine.

Anne...It is exactly 1.22 miles from the door of the Palmetto to the Pier ticket booth...just measured it on the Bay County Map:)

Now, sidewalks are hit/miss through there...that may be Edwin's concern. But, there are no particular obstructions that i'm aware of.
