Did you know that the distance between Miami and Key Largo is less than 100 miles? That’s a playlist listen, a great podcast episode or quality time with an audiobook away. Point is, the trip is short and easy, and the gift just keeps on giving once you arrive. Be honest; the grind and non-stop hustle of Miami can become overwhelming, so consider trading the intensity for some peace and calm in Key Largo. Maybe it’s time to hop in your car, roll the windows down, and make a Key Largo getaway your new favorite pastime.
Here are some of the most exciting, engaging and energizing things to do while in Key Largo.
- Visit an Underwater Park
Okay, okay. We know this sounds bizarre, but hear us out. At John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, you can literally dive deep and see an underwater park full of marine life, lush greenery and even historic shipwrecks. If you aren’t into the idea of diving down to the park, you could also hop aboard a glass-bottom boat and take a specialized tour. Then, once you’re awed and amazed, you can enjoy other activities at the State Park like picnicking, nature trails, a huge saltwater aquarium, and of course, swimming at the beach.
- Go Snorkeling
Okay, so everyone’s not an Olympic-level swimmer and desires a deep sense of adventure. Some people simply want to relax in the crystal clear water and maybe do a little snorkeling for added measure. That’s perfectly fine and perfectly doable because there are tons of snorkeling opportunities in Key Largo – complete with professional instruction and oceanic views you’ll never forget. Check out Baker’s Cay Resort Key Largo for everything you need to live out the snorkeling of your dreams.
- Try Your Hand at Fishing
If you like the sport but haven’t had much luck fishing in Miami, definitely get out on the water and try fishing in Key Largo. There are lots of fishing charters available to help you not only enjoy yourself, but to actually rein in some quality fish. Miss Chief Fishing Charters, for example, provides everything you need to have a positive experience – they’ll even filet and bag your catches!

- Do Nothing At All
Sometimes the best vacations aren’t filled with activities. Sometimes, the best way to rejuvenate is to simply relax, and Key Largo naturally brings a whole lot of relaxation.
