Before the great city of Miami existed, Henry Flagler envisioned a railroad across the sea that would promote a cultural and economic connection with Cuba, the Panama Canal and South
America. Construction began in 1904. On January 22, 1912, Henry Flagler rode the railroad to Key West, where the project was heralded by the press as the "Eighth Wonder of the World."
It was Flagler’s vision that makes the Florida Keys an economically viable destination. The Paddle Florida Keys Challenge will be held as part of the Centennial Celebration of Henry Flagler`s railroad. We`ll arrive at Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park on the 100th anniversary of Flagler`s arrival on his train from Miami.
Today the Keys are a paddler’s paradise, with shallow water in five shades of blue and green. We hope you can join us to revisit Henry Flagler’s vision!

|The Key Largo Stone Crab and Seafood Festival was created by the Key Largo Merchants Association to highlight what makes Key Largo Unique –Fresh Seafood, clear waters, unique arts and crafts, music, and great, fresh seafood. Held each year on the last weekend in January, proceeds from the festival help local charities continue their goals. The festival contains cooking demos, fishing demos, a kids fishing tournament, key lime pie eating contests, shrimp eating contests, live music, magic shows, and a kids play area. Fun for the entire family.
If you missed the event last year…you missed something special, and the Key Largo Stone Crab and Seafood Festival is the largest event in Key Largo with over 100 vendors, tons of fresh seafood (lobsters, shrimp, fish, oysters), Island Music, fireworks, and over 10,000 spectators.
