Key Largo Commerce & Culture
This largest island on the Florida Keys is often called the “Dive Capital of the World.” Though technically an unofficial title, Key Largo is home to the only living coral reef in the United States, a sight that is not to be missed. And whether it’s opalescent wildlife, a shipwreck turned massive artificial reef, or the sunken Christ of the Abyss statue, you never know what you might find below the surface of Key Largo’s waters. Fishing is a storied sport on the island, while paddleboarding and kayaking are daily pursuits for many. Life on Key Largo doesn’t feel isolated despite being a literal island. There is a fine assortment of top-notch restaurants, and waterside dining options are a given. You’ll also discover a fleet of food trucks across Key Largo and the Upper Keys, with local chefs serving up comforting favorites and regional specialties.
