Calling itself “The Heart of the Florida Keys,” Marathon is about an hour’s drive to Key West to the south and to Key Largo to the north. A number of islands actually constitute the Monroe County City of Marathon. The city takes its name from workers on Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway. Reportedly held to a relentless pace of work to complete the railroad’s overseas construction toward Key West, employees claimed to be working a Marathon. World-class fishing, along with tropical weather and sparkling beaches draw a steady stream of visitors to the area. The Islands of Marathon, as the city is officially called, hosts a seafood festival every year, and is active in economic development aimed at bringing new businesses to the area.
