There are no commercial businesses on the Island with the exception of the golf cart repair shop, which is a big convenience for the Island residents. The only motorized vehicle on LGI is operated by the fire department.
There are a handful of subdivisions which have community docks for residents that are not directly on the water. There is a Water Taxi that will take visitors that do not have a boat to and from the Island. You are minutes from half a dozen marinas where you can store your boat when you leave the Island.
