Marathon and the Middle Keys
The Middle Keys have the three longest bridges in all of the Florida Keys. The journey by car through this area is one that traverses water on second generation bridges, alongside the older, original spans that first carried visitors, workers, and residents alike. The bridges define Marathon and the Middle Keys, and create a world where to travel means that one always seems to be gliding over water. The vistas are different here than in the rest of the Keys, with architectural remains of older bridges alongside the newer versions. Sunsets and pictures always include an fading perspective of a bridge reaching into the horizon towards Key West. The Middle Keys have an ambiance all their own, thanks to these bridges. Making Marathon and the Middle Keys drivable was a Herculean undertaking, and rumor has it that the workmen named Marathon for the gigantic effort given by all the workers to building the bridges and roads through this area.
