Marathon Seafood Festival
Our annual premier event featuring fresh Florida Keys seafood, live entertainment and over 200 vendors. Come sea what its all about!
Relocate to Paradise
It IS POSSIBLE to live & work in paradise here in the Islands of Marathon. Our Marathon Red Carpet Tours program is here to help you every step of the way; what are you waiting for?
The Marathon Chamber of Commerce is the perfect place to start if you are planning to relocate to the Middle Florida Keys. Once you get here, refer to this page for information on living in the islands of Marathon.
Here in the Greater Marathon area, we enjoy life at a slower pace; so, relax and make yourself at home, you are on island time now!
Directions in the Keys in general are typically given by mile marker with either Ocean or Bay, also called Gulf, so that we are able to determine which side of the highway your destination is on.
Speaking of roads; there is only one road in and one road out – the Overseas Highway, or US-1! This famous strip of asphalt has been immortalized in song and book alike. This road is your passage from famed Key Largo to infamous Key West.
Sandals and shorts are acceptable attire no matter the venue, and we know you are going to love our laid back atmosphere fish filled waters and sunny days every bit as much as we do. And no, we never grow tired of fish stories, sunshine, palm trees, or Jimmy Buffet songs.
We hope you find yourself here in the Islands of Marathon in the Heart of the Fabulous Florida Keys.
