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.
