All about Key Largo
A sliver dangling off the tip of Florida, the northernmost and longest of the state’s keys is all about the sea. Some folks call Key Largo the Diving Capital of the World thanks to its expansive underwater state park and plentiful coral reefs. Snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, beach bumming, and glass-bottom boating are all on offer.
Key Largo’s main drag is lined with strip malls, while veering down little-explored lanes can reward visitors with elegant plantation houses, hardwood hammocks, and tranquil marinas. After exploring the scene by day, hit up a bayside or oceanfront restaurant for happy hour and you might just be rewarded with a magical sunset.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Key Largo?
Key Largo's weather is warm and sunny between November and March, and this tends to come in step with a large number of visitors and matching high season prices for vacation rentals. Despite the risk of summer rain, June through August are also great months to visit for snorkeling and diving, though do keep in mind that hurricanes become increasingly likely in late summer and into early fall.
Regardless of when you visit, be sure to pack a sunhat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a trusty pair of flipflops.
What are the top things to do in Key Largo?
John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
No Florida Keys vacation is complete without a snorkel in this mostly underwater park, where glassbottom boat tours of a thriving reef — including large schools of fish and the occasional barracuda or turtle — are great for families. You can also scuba dive or snorkel down to Christ of the Abyss, a 4,000-pound bronze Jesus statue, or explore the park’s 170 acres of land featuring tranquil beaches, nature trails, and boardwalks.
Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park
One of the nation’s largest swaths of West Indian tropical hardwood hammock, this park’s six miles of trails — most of which are accessible to wheelchairs and bicycles — feature rare plants like wild cotton and mahogany mistletoe, and protected animals including (shudder) American crocodiles.
Everglades National Park
Everglades National Park comprises 1.5 million acres of subtropical wilderness to explore. The park has three separate entrances — from Key Largo the closest destination is the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center (a 30-40 minute drive). Once there, the popular Anhinga Trail offers possible sightings of alligators, turtles, and egrets, among rare and endangered species.
