The “Heart of the Keys,” Marathon is perfect for exploring the region’s natural treasures. Sombrero Reef,
one of the most beautiful sections of North America’s
only living coral barrier reef, lies just offshore. On land,
learn about two of Florida’s most famous marine creatures at the Turtle Hospital and the Dolphin Research
Center. Heading south from Marathon, Big Pine and
the Lower Keys offer a quieter escape where you can
explore the beauty of Bahia Honda State Park, visit the
National Key Deer Refuge, and sleep beneath the stars
at one of many campgrounds.
At the southernmost tip of this tropical road trip, the
iconic island city of Key West awaits. Narrow, palmlined streets showcase gingerbread mansions where
such legends as Ernest Hemingway once lived. Art
galleries feature modern treasures, while sidewalk
cafés turn island specialties into works of genius. At
sunset, street performers entertain crowds at Mallory
Square before the revelry really begins on famed Duval
Street. Luxe resorts, quirky inns, and cozy guest houses make it easy to feel at home in this eclectic island
abode. fla-keys.com

TAKE A COLORFUL TRIP TO
THE EMERALD COAST
Colors define the Emerald Coast: emerald green, blue,
and sugar white. The emerald green water breaks in
white-foam waves on the pure sugar-white sand. High
above, puffy clouds float in a vibrant blue sky. Hypnotic.
Soothing. Beautiful. No wonder so many artists gravitate here.
The Emerald Coast includes 24 miles of this stunning Northwest Florida coastline, encompassing the
cities of Destin and Fort Walton Beach and the barrier
island community of Okaloosa Island that lies between
them. Five beachfront parks, all with picnic tables,
make it surprisingly easy to find your own uncrowded

For tropical beauty with a barefoot attitude, nothing beats the Florida Keys. Known for its laid-back
atmosphere, this 120-mile coral archipelago boasts
gorgeous scenery, endless aquatic activities, and an
enviable Caribbean climate.
Start your journey through the Keys in Key Largo, a
natural paradise just an hour’s drive from South Florida’s
two major airports. Flanked by Everglades National
Park to the west and the U.S.’s only living coral barrier
reef to the east, Key Largo was made for adventure.
Diving or snorkeling in John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park is a must-do, as is kayaking among the unique
scenery of the Everglades. Just south of Key Largo,
Islamorada draws anglers from around the globe who
come in search of the big gamefish that thrive in its
Atlantic waters. The area’s popular Morada Way Arts
& Cultural District boasts a colorful collection of art
galleries and boutiques, and the culinary scene here
makes the most of the surroundings with fresh-fromthe-docks seafood and dining rooms that always offer
a choice of “outdoors or in?”

history, including the nearby Air Force Armament
Museum at Eglin Air Force Base. A variety of clubs,
many with live music, turn up the energy at night.
Okaloosa Island appeals especially to families and
lovers of nature. It’s a great place for parasailing,
snorkeling, and other water sports. At Gulfarium
Marine Adventure Park, the world’s oldest continuously operating live marine show thrills kids. The

resorts to family-friendly condos and home rentals.
You could easily spend a week testing the sand on
Martin County’s many pristine beaches, but the region
also offers plenty of more active adventures. Hike the nature trails at the Hobe Sound Nature Center, paddle the
Loxahatchee River, and explore the mangroves and river
swamps in Jonathan Dickinson State Park. Test the waves
with a surf lesson or stand-up paddle board excursion.

driving time of four international airports: Palm Beach,
Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, and Orlando.
