Key Largo is the first of the fabulous Florida Keys archipelago, and the largest of its islands. bKey Largo is sandwiched between the wilderness of the Everglades National Park to the west and the fish-covered coral formations of North America's only living coral barrier reef to the east. Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland but yet still be afforded great parks, restaurants and shopping while maintaining an easy driving distance to the Miami International airport? Then Key Largo is for you. The lifestyle is one of casual grace and the residents always welcome new friends.
Being so close to the mainland yet so isolated from the amenities of "civilization," has given Key Largo residents a strong sense of self reliance. Today, water, electricity and most supplies come from the mainland. Most of businesses are locally and/or family owned and operated. Charter boats, dive shops, restaurants, lodging and some of the local media are but a few examples... If you want to carve out your own piece of the pie, or just visit and remember what a small town is really like, Key Largo is the place for you.
