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

Archaeological digs at Crane Point Hammock have revealed seven centuries of visitors, residents and natural treasures. And 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.

The Dolphin Research Center on nearby Grassy Key was once the site of Flipper’s Sea School, and the original filming location of Flipper’s 1950’s movie. And while much of Henry Flagler’s magnificent railroad was destroyed by a hurricane in 1935, when you travel along our historic Seven Mile Bridge (which is actually 6.9 miles), you’re driving where Flagler’s mighty locomotives once roared.

Of course, your visit here wouldn’t be complete without checking out the old conch houses on Pigeon Key, which is only accessible from the old Seven Mile Bridge. Or a nice, refreshing dip in the inviting waters of Sombrero Beach.

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