I was thinking of going to Hawaii (been there though) but the prices are much higher than Key Largo.. Is it a nice vacation spot? Can it be reasonable? Just looking for a relaxing place. Plus I dive so that's a plus but I want the wife to have a nice time too? Advice? Costs? Getting around?

nina :
"Are you kidding? I used to live in the keys. It was the best 2 years of my life. Key Largo is a great place to start. Please promise you will go to Key West, it is a small Island with like a 7 mile bridge going over the ocean to ge there. A quaint place with good eats and great activities, eat at a place called Eat it Raw its famous. Make sure to go to Miami for a day trip it isn't too far and your wife will LOVE the shopping. You can also take a day cruise to Bimini which is also great for diving, snorkeling, and para sailing. Then of course Orland is about a 2 hour drive with the happiest place on earth DISNEYWORLD. Your kids will think you are a hero."

"Advice: Watch out for skinny dippers at night time . Costs: Regular Getting around: Use US1/Overseas Hwy or CR 905/Card Sound Road to get to and from Mainland Florida ."

"The only problem is...there are no beaches there."
Carl Spackler :
"Check out this place. Ocean Reef club. It's been a few years since I've been there but it's a great place. They have tons of activities - diving, swim with the dolphins, parasailing, windsailing, water skiing, etc. I believe they will pick you up at the airport as well. Key West is also worth a visit but it's an hour and a half away. So you would probably need to rent a car. Maybe on another trip I would recommend to do that. "

how much is a pack of marlboro in key largo? Im coming down for vacation and would like to know how much they are

Timothy M :
"WHY?"
Miami Lilly :
"Right before you get to Key Largo, you're in Florida City..I know a pack of Marlboros is about $3.79 a pack..you may want to add a few cents more for Key Largo..so just figure about $4."
scrunge5440 :
"If you are driving down the turnpike, your best bet is to buy your smokes at the Seminole Indian Reservation smoke shop in Hollywood, just outside of Ft. Lauderdale. I don't recall the exit number, but you will see the sign indicating your entering the rez. I quit smoking a long time ago, so I am not sure of the current price, but it is way cheaper than Key Largo."
Florida Girl :
"About $4.00"

My family and I are going to Key Largo for a vacation (5 adults) any info on AFFORDABLE shops in the area? I'm not sure if my daughter and I should pick up our summer cloths here - or just enjoy ourselves and shop there. I've never been to Florida before so we are really green in this area - also how is the fishing from land? My husband & son love to fish. We've done deep sea fishing before - but this time they would like to try from land. Is it possible to fish from the docks or from shore? Only positive comments please

Rhinos-N-Roses :
"I'm sure everything is priced for tourists there. When I went, I got a nice bathing suit for $55 that I haven't seen one like it anywhere else. I think the fishing is pretty good; I haven't done it but I saw people all through the Keys fishing from land and bridge. Have a great time. Watch out for the worst driving in the US and wear sunscreen all day, keep reapplying."
fletcher_101 :
"there is an "outlet" mall just north of key largo on the mainland. You can fish from the docks but it's tough because the water is so shallow near the shore."

I was in Key Largo last week for a scuba trip and tried to find the exact location of the dream home. I think it is at MM 84 or 86.5. Any ideas. Everyone in the area had no idea where the dream home was. Can anyone help me out.
