Did You Know?

The name Marathon was derived from the railroad workers who worked night and day to complete the Florida East Coast Railroad. They often complained that the project was getting to be a real "marathon".

The Turtle Hospital

A must stop in the Florida Keys is the Turtle Hospital which opened in 1986. Here at the facility they rehab injured turtles so they can be returned to the wild as well as conduct research on how to assist and aid them. They are firm believers in educating the public and work toward environmental legislation that would make the beaches and waters safe for sea turtles. It is interesting to watch a working hospital in action as well as see the tidal pool with its permanent residents that were too injured to be returned to their natural habitat. You may even get to feed them! Reservations for tours must be booked in advance and run daily on the hour between 9AM and 4PM.
