Little Palm Island
Imagine your own tropical island. A hideaway where you forget your cares beneath the thatched roof of your own private bungalow.

Key Largo is the first town as you enter the Keys after crossing the bridge from the mainland. It can be reached from Miami in an hour and from Fort Lauderdale in an hour and 45 minutes. Once the bridge from the mainland is crossed, the change in pace is noticed immediately. There is much less traffic and people just seem more relaxed in the Florida Keys compared to the mainland...read more »
