The Middle Keys extends from Marathon at the western end, to Long Key at the eastern, and includes the City of Key Colony Beach, Grassy Key, and Duck Key (a Census-designated place including Conch Key) in between. Our Middle Keys real estate services cover the same areas!
Marathon is a 10-mile-long family-oriented island community rooted in a heritage of fishing, and reflects the "Old Keys" lifestyle that residents, snowbirds and visitors enjoy so much. Located in "the heart of the Florida Keys" just 50 miles from Key West and approximately two hours driving time from Miami, it's primarily a community of family homes with an estimated 2010 permanent population of 8,297 people. It is incorporated and has a City Council form of government.
Marathon has all the essential facilities to serve the needs of our residents and tourists alike:
The City of Key Colony Beach with a population of just under 900 people is adjacent. The city, called the "Gem of the Florida Keys," is on an island just south of the Overseas Highway connected via a causeway with a very small bridge. Most residences are on canals with quick access to the Gulf or
The island of Duck Key is situated near MM61 and has a largely residential community of under 500 residents. Hawk's Cay Resort is also located there.
The Middle Keys' tropical climate averages 78.50 F year round, with no snow, no frost, but plenty of sunshine! Our primary industry is tourism, followed by fishing.
According to local legend, Marathon got its name early this century when we were the base of operations for the construction of Flagler's Railroad, and the workers referred to the non-stop work schedule as a "marathon". That history is being well preserved by the local Pigeon Key Foundation as well as by the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center, both located in Marathon.
