Key Largo is the first key in the Florida Keys and is only about 1 hour south of Miami and Miami International Airport. Florida City is the last mainland Florida city those driving to the Keys will pass through on their way to the islands. Key Largo's close proximity to mainland Florida make it an excellent tropical vacation destination for Floridians looking for a weekend Florida Keys getaway.

Key Largo is locally known as "The Dive Capital of the World" and for good reason. Key Largo is bordered to the east by America's only living barrier reef and is home to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, America's first undersea park. John Pennekamp State Park has 47 full-facility camp sites for tent and RV campers and offers, swimming, fishing and diving opportunities. At Cannon Beach inside the park, remnants of a Spanish shipwreck lay just 100 feet off shore.
