Marathon

4.1
Heart of the Florida Keys
A tiny city just 16 km (10 mi) long, Marathon is spread across several islands in the middle of the Florida Keys. A tropical climate, sandy beaches, and excellent watersports make Marathon a vacation favorite with tourists. It is a major sport-fishing destination, and visitors can watch charter boats sailing to and from the marina every day. Colorful reefs teeming with life and nearby shipwrecks attract divers from all over the world. The city’s proud seafaring heritage is celebrated by the numerous waterfront restaurants serving up the catch of the day. In the build up to your vacation in Marathon, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our United States vacation maker website.
