Snorkeling and Diving doesn't get any better than this.
Boats will take you to these colorful seascapes.

Marathon is always popping; it’s highly developed and attracts lots of visitors, especially during the summer months with so much going on.

Luckily, visitors don’t find a shortage of things to do in Marathon Florida. You can shop till you drop, sun yourself on one of the gorgeous beaches, swim, fish, scuba and snorkel. The possibilities are endless.

Marathon is reminiscent of a “city that never sleeps.” Although it lacks Vegas’ architecture and gambling, it makes up for it in its partying and fun activities.

Great activities to try and nearby attractions:

  • Take a ride along the 7-mile bridge, which links Key Vaca (the island that Marathon resides on) and Sunshine Key (island at the lower end of the Florida Keys).

    This is one of the longest bridges in the world and you may never see a view like this again.

  • Head over to Sombrero Beach to experience a nice relaxing beach picnic or enjoy a beach so serene, you might just decide to take a little catnap. Parking is free at Sombrero Beach and there are picnic tables, a playground for the kiddies and a respite from the sun.

  • Close by and worth a short trip- visit Curry Hammock State Park. Here, you can enjoy another pristine beach here as well as fish or have a family picnic.

  • Swim with dolphins at Dolphin Connection or The Dolphin Research Center, where you can also learn a lot about these friendly water dwellers.

Kids of most ages: Don’t miss the turtle hospital where you and the kiddies can get up close and personal with some injured turtles lovingly being nursed back to health so they can return to their beautiful home.

Eating: Hang out (and grab a bite) at the Barracuda Grill or Butterfly Café.

Sleeping: If you’re looking for a luxury stay in a tropical paradise, Tranquility Bay Beach House Resort is the place for you.

The Hammocks at Marathon hotel offers fishing charters right from the hotel. On a budget? Try Blue Waters Motel.
