Key Largo

Key Largo in the Florida Keys is considered the dive capital of the world. It is the first island when you get on the Overseas Highway. The coral barrier reef lies to the east while the Everglades National Park is on the west. When I say that it is the Dive capitol of the world, it is because of the locals who claim this. It’s probably true because on Key Largo you will find the best charter captains and fishing guides in the world. They love working out of this wonderland.

Although it is considered the fishing and diving capital, there are lots of things to do. I think the Craft Beer and Home Brewers tasting event may be of interest. At mile marker 106.8 (remember if you want to find a place, you have to learn how to read the mile markers) is usually in April and the Key Largo Rotary Club runs this event.

Do you remember the classic film, The African Queen? If you do, you can go see the vessel that Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn made famous in the movie of the same name near mm (that’s mile marker) 100. It’s just been recently restored. Key Largo Chamber 800-822-1088 is where you can call for more information. Here’s a video on what they are doing to restore this vessel. Continue reading

Vacation Resorts

Vacations to the Florida Keys can be a dream come true with a little bit of planning. The first and foremost thing you want to do is decide how you want to get there. Fly, drive or by boat are options that you will want to research. Some people will fly to Miami, get a rental and then enjoy the ultimate trip down the Overseas Highway. From mile marker 120 to mm 0 you will find islands that are rich in culture, arts and full of the outdoors.

Want to get married in the Keys on the beach and with a sunset behind you? It is a desire that comes true for many couples here in the Keys. For some information you will need, I wrote a post on getting married in this American Caribbean.

Snorkeling and diving on the States only living coral barrier reef is found in the Keys. A scuba diving vacation or a sport fishing vacation may be what you are looking for and is possible with vacations to Florida Keys. Continue reading
