Marathon’s Newest Lighthouse

IMG_0449Father Time marches on! I’ve said before, every trip to Key West provides me with a constantly changing environment to update prior blogs and a seemingly endless pool of new ones.

Welcome to the latest Florida Keys city limit sign to hit the scene! Marathon’s two shiny copper-colored lighthouses make a great addition to your 128 mile drive down paradise. Yes two, one on each end of town while on Hwy US-1. For those of you traveling at night you get an extra bonus, the beacon at the top actually works provided by solar power stored in the panel at its base. (pictured below)

You can find both of  these new city limit lighthouses on US-1 before and after leaving the city of Marathon. I’ve included the old sign below so that you too can celebrate ringing in the new, as if we need a reason to pop a top in the Keys! 🙂
