Key Largo, the northern-most island of the Florida Keys island chain, lies only an hour's drive from South Florida's two major airports. Yet it is a world away.
Just an hour's drive south of Miami lies Key Largo, home to two state parks, a national park, a national marine sanctuary and some of the most fascinating botanical scenery in the state. In 2010, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, America's first underseas park, turns 50. And, the year 2010 marks the 75th year of the Florida Park Service. We invite you to also explore Key Largo's Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park, Everglades National Park and all the underwater delights of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. A host of eco-tourism and dive-snorkel services and accommodations are ready to help you discover the natural wonders of Key Largo.
