About Key Largo

The Key Largo wiki tells us the following about the area:

“Key Largo is an island in the upper Florida Keys archipelago and, at 33 miles long, the largest of the Keys. It is also the northernmost of the Florida Keys in Monroe County, and the northernmost of the Keys connected by U.S. Highway 1 (the Overseas Highway). Its earlier Spanish name was Cayo Largo, meaning Long Key.

Key Largo is connected to the mainland in Miami-Dade County by two routes. The Overseas Highway, which is U.S. Highway 1, enters Key Largo at Jewfish Creek near the middle of the island and turns southwest. Card Sound Road connects to the northern part of Key Largo at Card Sound Bridge and runs southeastward to connect with County Road 905, which runs southwest and joins U.S. 1 at about mile marker 106. These routes originate at Florida City on the mainland.

Key Largo is a popular tourist destination and calls itself the “Diving Capital of the World” because the living coral reef a few miles offshore attracts thousands of scuba divers and sport-fishing enthusiasts.

Key Largo’s proximity to the Everglades also makes it a premier destination for kayakers and ecotourists. Automotive and highway pioneer and Miami Beach developer Carl G. Fisher built Key Largo’s famous Caribbean Club in 1938 as his last project.

There are three census-designated places on the island of Key Largo: North Key Largo, near the Card Sound Bridge, Key Largo, eight or nine miles from the southern end of the island, and Tavernier, at the southern end of the island. Ocean Reef Club is a private gated community and club at the northern end of the island. None of Key Largo is an incorporated municipality, so it is governed at the local level by Monroe County.

Key Largo is situated between Everglades National Park to the north-west and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park to the east, the first underwater park in the United States and the site of the only living coral barrier reef in the continental United States.”

The travel and tourism site for the area adds the following:

“Key Largo, called “the first of the Florida Keys,” because of its northernmost location along the Florida Keys chain, is an hour’s drive from South Florida’s two major airports. Yet it is a world away.

Home to two state parks, a national park, a national marine sanctuary, Key Largo boasts some of the most fascinating botanical scenery in the state. …

Key Largo is located just minutes by car from mainland Florida, making it a perfect getaway for South Florida’s diverse lineup of events.”
