Discover Your Summer Sanctuary
When you think of summer, what do you imagine? White sand beaches, frozen cocktails, glistening pools… Tranquility Bay? Make this summer one the whole family will remember, right here in the Florida Keys.
To give you a little taste of what’s to come, we have rounded up some of our favorite upcoming summer events to check out after you check in to paradise.
Marathon beach Party & Fireworks Show (July 4th)
It isn’t Independence Day without a fireworks show, and Marathon puts on one of the largest and longest displays in the Keys. The day-long event kicks off with a patriotic parade, with food, drink, kids’ crafts, and entertainment capped off after dark with fireworks. Top tip: Our neighborhood is known as the ‘Boating Destination of the Keys,’ so we recommend watching the festivities on the water.
Key Lime Festival (July 1st – 5th)
Four days of delicious culinary events are planned for early July, celebrating our famous Key Lime Pie. Enjoy a wacky talent show, throw yourself into The Key Lime Pie Hop, and put your skills to the test in a cooking contest. Plus, do you have what it takes to be crowned the Key Lime Pie Eating World Champion?
Florida Keys Brew-BQ (July 17th – 18th)
Taking place in Marathon’s Community Park, expect mouth-watering BBQ and delicious craft beer to complement it. Along with live music, cooking competitions, kids games and more!
Lobster Season (August)
Watch the frenzy as boaters descend on Marathon in search of delicious fresh Florida lobster when the season begins on August 6th. Or head down to Key West and chow down on a lobster boil or street fare at the town’s famed “feast-ival”, Lobsterfest (August 12th-15th)
…Or Just Relax Poolside
Sometimes you just need to disconnect and unwind in your own little oasis. Escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – here, your only concern is which pool to relax by, or which cocktail to choose.
