Largo began as a tiny little 300-person farming community in the early 1900s, and today has an estimated 2015 population 81,000 residents! Most of that growth was slow and steady, except for a post-war boom after WWII. Today, the city has shucked off its agricultural roots and expanded into manufacturing, especially electronics. But the city is mainly a bedroom community, meaning most residents commute out. Those that are employed in the city itself are mostly working in retail or the service industry. The city has many nature reserves and parks, including Largo Central Park Nature Preserve. This is a 31-acre nature park virtually surrounded by water, and full of exotic wildlife. Between the commute and the tourists, residents should stay safe on the road by exploring all the options for cheap car insurance Largo has to offer.
