Key Largo, Florida

The 2015 Humphrey Bogart Film Festival will again be held on the tropical island of Key Largo, Florida.  Located at the northern tip of the Florida Keys with easy access from multiple airports and an easy drive from many of Florida's popular destinations.

Spanish explorers called it Cayo Largo, or Long island.  However, film buffs associate Key Largo with the movie of the same name.  Filmed in 1948 starring Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and Edward G. Robinson, the movie caused the name change for the area from Rock Harbor to Key Largo.  And holding true to the glittering era of classic films, the original steamboat used in another Bogart film, The African Queen, calls Key largo it's home port.

Beginning in 2013, Key Largo became home to the Humphrey Bogart Film Festival.  This event is held annually and offers it's guests the opportunity to see the movie Key Largo in Key Largo... outdoors under the stars on a big screen.  And that is how we kick off the festival celebration!

 



What a great location for a film festival and vacation tied into one. The month of October boast beautiful weather in the Florida Keys. Mild temperatures, tropical breezes and you can count on daily sunsets melting into the Florida Bay.

Key Largo is located just an hours drive south of major International airports located in both Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  You will find a variety of accommodations to choose from.  From breathtaking waterfront views to a tucked away room surrounded by lush tropical gardens, there is something for every taste and budget. The island is home to several "brand" hotels as well as many smaller resorts that are as well appointed and manicured as a five star accommodation.  

Come for the festival... enjoy the islands.
 
Before, during and after the festival, plan time to explore just why The Florida Keys are often referred to as America's Caribbean.  Key Largo stretches for 30 miles making it the largest of the Florida Keys.  With Florida Bay on one side and the Atlantic ocean on the other there endless opportunities to get out on the water.  Local captains offer dive and snorkel trips, offshore or backcountry fishing excursions and glass bottom boat rides.  Local shops also offer kayaking or paddle board rentals with or without a guided tour. You'll find many opportunities for photographs crossing over bridges, visiting our bird center or swimming with a dolphin.  If time allows, we are only a two hour drive from the southernmost point in the USA - Key West... the last of the Florida Keys.
