Marathon — 5 nights

A tiny city just 16 km (10 mi) long, Marathon is spread across several islands in the middle of the Florida Keys.

You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bahia Honda State Park and Sombrero Beach. Explore Marathon's surroundings by going to Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological State Park (in Islamorada) and Key Largo (Island Dolphin Care, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, &more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the gorgeous colors at Sombrero Reef, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Turtle Hospital, examine the collection at Crane Point Museum & Nature Center, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Pablo Catholic Church.
