Marriage is a celebration of love designed to last for all eternity, so it makes perfect sense to begin your life’s journey together with a wedding in Marathon. Fly into our airport and you’re landing right in the heart of The Keys. A place where pirates once roamed, the water is clear and inviting, and fishing means record-breaking trophies.

Visit the Dolphin Research Center on nearby Grassy Key, once the site of Flipper’s Sea School and the original filming location of Flipper’s 1950’s movie. Travel along our historic Seven Mile Bridge (which is actually 6.9 miles), and you’re driving where Henry Flagler’s mighty locomotives once roared, although much of the railroad was destroyed by a hurricane in 1935. At the Museum of National History, you can hike on nature trails that date back hundreds of years and enjoy a variety of exhibits and special events.

Archaeological digs at Crane Point Hammock have revealed seven centuries of visitors, residents and national treasures in Marathon. Your visit wouldn’t be complete without checking out the old conch houses on Pigeon Key, only accessible from the old Seven Mile Bridge. Of course a nice, refreshing dip in the inviting waters of Sombrero beach will add the perfect touch to your Marathon wedding.

Yes, Marathon is not only in the Heart of The Keys, it will also find a way to steal your heart.
