Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) June 19, 2011
Bluegreen Corporation (NYSE: BXG), a leading provider of Colorful Places to Live and Play, today announced that U.S. 1, the highway leading to and from its Florida Keys timeshare resort, The Hammocks at Marathon, was named one of America’s Most Scenic Roads by Travel + Leisure Magazine and Yahoo!® Travel.
U.S. 1 is the only highway that brings guests through the 120-mile-long Florida Keys island chain, which runs from Key Largo to Key West. U.S. 1 also brings visitors across the 7-Mile Bridge, one of the longest bridges in the world. Travelers will experience everything from underwater coral reefs to marinas that allow you to hand-feed tarpon along this highway, not-to-mention plenty of beach bars, Jimmy Buffet-themed frozen margaritas, historical sites and much more.
Bluegreen’s Florida Keys resort, The Hammocks at Marathon, is located on the island of Marathon, just 50 miles north of Key West on U.S. 1. This popular Bluegreen resort features an on-site marina for fishing and boating charters, plus a waterfront pool, hot tub and Barnacle Barney’s Tiki Bar & Grill. Guests here will enjoy close proximity to many of the Florida Keys attractions. Visit Sombrero Beach or explore Long Key State Park or Bahia Honda, near this Bluegreen resort.
