Havin' it large in Largo, Florida

For a taste of Old Florida, head to the charming city of Largo. Rooted in citrus farming history, the city is crammed with cool attractions. Get your Floridian dream getaway off to a great start by booking a Largo vacation rental near the beach or in downtown. Play a round of golf, hang out in the beautiful Florida Botanical Gardens, or spend the day at Pinewood Cultural Park's Heritage Village, a 21-acre open-air museum. After dark, venture into downtown Largo for dinner and drinks, or catch a Broadway show at the legendary Eight O'Clock Theatre.

Things to do

Hey Largo, I never promised you a rose garden

Spreading over 150 acres, the Florida Botanical Gardens is a little taste of heaven. And best of all it's free! Open almost every day of the year, green-fingered visitors come to explore the themed gardens, including the Rose Garden and Tropical Fruit Garden. There's also a children's trail, a wetlands area and a gift shop. The Heritage Village at Pinewood Cultural Park is a great day out for all the family. This open-air living museum set on 21 acres of woodland is a collection of restored homes and buildings, many of which host spinning and weaving demonstrations.


Florida's beach scene is Largo than life

Life in this beautiful palm-lined city is all about the great outdoors. Whether you want to score a birdie on one of the city's many golf courses, go shopping in downtown, or come to experience Largo's buzzing festival scene in Largo Central Park. Book a Largo vacation rental close to the beach and have the miles and miles of soft, white sands and curling surf licking your toes. Another big draw to Largo is sport fishing for barracuda or marlin. Book a fishing excursion, or kick back on a dolphin-watching cruise as the sun sets.


It's all sunshine and lollypops in Largo

If it's year-round sunshine you want then you've come to the right place. Largo benefits from a subtropical climate, which means sizzling hot summers and mild winters. Spring is a particular pleasant time to visit. The days are bright, sunny and largely dry, and temperatures reach a balmy 80 degrees. Summer is also a popular season, with lots of festivals and outdoor events. It's worth noting that June to November is hurricane season, and there's a higher chance of tropical rain and high winds. Winter is cooler, but still bright and sunny with temperatures around 60-70 degrees.

Natural features

From beaches to birdlife, Largo's a Natural Born Thriller

Stretching from Tampa Bay to the Gulf of Mexico, Largo is blessed with two coastlines, both with miles and miles of beautiful white-sand beaches. While beaches are a big part of life in Largo, it's also home to other natural attractions. Covering 8700 acres, the Brooker Creek Preserve is the largest natural area in Pinellas County. It has 5 miles of hiking trails, plus a boardwalk through the wetlands. Catch a glimpse of wild turkey, deer and gopher tortoise, as well as Florida's indigenous wading bird.
