Baker's Cay Resort Key Largo Escape to an island paradise with luxe waterfront accommodations Words by Charles Greenfield As a Miami kid, my family used to spend weekends driving down to Key Largo to swim, fish, and cavort before ending the day in a ramshackle diner gobbling down fresh fried yellowtail snapper and luscious key lime pie. Part of the adventure was the 20-mile treacherous, swampy, two-lane stretch after Florida City, with makeshift roadside memorials to those who didn't concentrate. While north Key Largo has thankfully preserved most of its thick, luxuriant semi-tropical foliage, the southern end became a stew of strip malls, dive shops, craft boutiques, small marinas and mom- and-pop motels. In fact, for most travelers, the green-and- white mile markers (Key Largo: MM 118 to MM 90.7) served as mere distance calculators on the southwest trek to the final destination – Key West.
