Rerouting Our Course Successfully

It is hard to believe that we have been dealing with the pandemic for over a year. Even though COVID-19 has rerouted our course, the Key Largo Chamber remains focused on our members and the future of the Florida Keys. As we launch into our high season, we have re-imagined Key Largo and the Florida Keys. What is excellent about our chain of islands is we have always had the ability to social distance. Not in a snooty way, but in the use of our outdoor environment to separate. We have seized the moment, and it will be beneficial for all of us. Key Largo is the first of the island chains and is proving to be more advantageous for visitors. We are no longer the pass-through to the Keys. Our

island is becoming more popular with drive-down tourism. The weekenders and the snowbirds are finding that we offer the same beauty as the rest of the Keys, without the long drive. Key Largo has outstanding restaurants, a variety of lodging opportunities, and, as mentioned before, a lot of social distancing activities. Being a member of this Chamber offers more than referrals. We are a coalition of businesses. Our Chamber will stay steadfast, connecting our members with the visitors and, most importantly, each other. We will continue being on the front lines to solve issues that impact our beautiful Florida Keys, as well as the future of our business atmosphere.

Dennis Caltagirone Chairman of the Board Key Largo Chamber of Commerce We are stronger together!
