Key Largo is a beautiful, island town in which I am thankful to live. It’s a fabulous place to live, vacation, raise children, and much more!

Weather excellent, obviously. People have very lackadaisical attitude towards almost anything. Strong sense of community, especially after Hurricane Irma. Lacking in sports but makes up for it in the ocean department. Many opportunities to go out on the water and snorkel and SCUBA dive.
Key Largo is a small, quiet town with not much of a nightlife. Cost of living is very high, and there is a lack of affordable workforce housing. Most of the job opportunities are within the hospitality industry. The area is great for visitors and retirees.
