Use this Map of the Marathon's group of islands when driving around, and like in any other part of the Florida Keys. Almost every major road will lead you back to US 1 (Scenic Highway) but sometimes you might need to find places of interest or other locations.
Be cautious when driving over the bridges, some areas have only two lines of traffic gone on opposite directions. Speed limits and road signals are very important here and enforced by the law, and have a safe trip through the Fabulous Florida Keys!
The Islands of Marathon are located right at the center of the Florida Keys, half way in between the Florida's main land and Key West.
At the heart of the Florida Keys is this unique group of islands where you'll find interesting places like Pigeon Key for example, the tiny island where Henry Flagler planted his base camp during the construction of the overseas railroad and bridges that connected these islands.

Some of the best restaurants I know are in Marathon, a variety of different foods are prepared by the chefs, being the seafood the one specialty that cannot be ignored. All fresh out of the big blue Straits of Florida!
