Dreams of a White Sand Christmas in the Florida Keys Can Still Come True

It’s not too late to change your holiday plans and send them in the subtropical direction of the Florida Keys. Just imagine kicking off those winter boots and sinking your bare toes into white powder-soft sand this Christmas, before retreating to your luxury oceanfront hideaway for family fun and spectacular sunsets. Marathon, Florida in the Middle Keys will be sparkling this December with its colorful displays, illuminated tropical trees and festive cheer. The island is a popular destination during the holidays, and you’re in luck: Tranquility Bay Resort has last-minute availability ready for you to discover magical moments in Marathon with your loved ones.
