Plan my trip to Marathon with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Memphis to Marathon is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight and shuttle. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Memphis to Marathon due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Memphis in May; daily highs in Marathon reach 88°F and lows reach 77°F.
