Dolphins - Grassy Key
The Dolphin Research Center
Turn left at Kmart on Sombrero Beach Road and you'll find one of the nicest
beach in the Middle Keys. The Keys are not known for their beaches but
Sombrero is a beautiful beach and it is right here in Marathon!
Marathon - Pigeon Key
7 Mile Bridge
A tiny five acre island just below the seven mile bridge was once the
home to the workers who built Henry Flagler's Railroad which connected
the Keys to northern commerce. Enjoy the relatively long walk along
the seven mile bridge to get out to the Island and take the Trolley
ride back. Some of you may remember The famed Seven Mile Bridge and
Pigeon Key in the movie "True Lies" featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Marathon - Museum and Nature Center
The most important historical and archaeological site in the Keys.
Evidence of Prehistoric Bahamian and Colombian tribes are found here.
On site you will also find The Museum of Natural History of the
Florida Keys, an archive of ancient artifacts found in the area and
The Children's Museum of the Florida Keys which is an indoor/outdoor
facility with ecological exhibits for the kids!
Don't miss The Adderley home. Early immigrant George Adderley and his
Family lived a simple life among tropical trees such as the
lignumvitae whose hard wood was once used to make bowling balls. The
family survived by making charcoal and gathering and selling sponges.
One trail will take you to the Marathon Wild Bird Center which is a
hospital for many of the native birds of the Marathon Area!
Feeding the fish is also a hit with the kids with large resident
Barracuda and Shark!
And I have to mention Casa Iguana, the home to many species of Iguanas
ranging from 3 to 6 feet long.
Marathon - Turtles
Turtle Hospital Educational Tour
Another can't miss experience is the Turtle Hospital Educational Tour
which many of our guests have included as a highlight of their
vacation. During the Tour you will learn of the many challenges facing
the Turtles in todays ocean waters and what we are doing to support
their existence now and into the future. Of course you'll also meet
Bubble-butt and many of their other residents and have a good time as
Price of admission includes an approximate 45 minute educational guide
of the hospital with a presentation and a 45 minute guide through the
sea turtle rehabilitation area.
Museum and Nature Center of Crane Point Hammock
The true home of Flipper! Don't miss this place; they are dedicated to
training, studying, and protecting the Dolphins! I recommend reserving
a spot to swim with one of the Dolphins, it is well worth the money!
Famous people from around the world visit this facility each year
because they are the best. You will be amazed at what you will learn
and the gift shop is quite nice as well.
