Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Crane Point Museum & Nature Center and San Pablo Catholic Church. Escape the urban bustle at Sunset Park Beach and The Turtle Hospital. When in Marathon, make a side trip to see Robbie's of Islamorada in Islamorada, approximately 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: immerse yourself in nature at Bahia Honda State Park, identify plant and animal life at Dolphin Research Center, snap pictures at Seven Mile Bridge, and enjoy the sand and surf at Sombrero Beach.
