Visiting Marathon Next Week - anything new or different?

We will be in Marathon next week and I was wondering what is new or different of which I should take note. We last visited in 2009. Thanks!

Where Aqua Ranch used to be there's now a kite board park - they pull you across the water on a wire pulley. Other then that..... just a few restaurants have come and gone and oh, helicopter tours are now avl.

Name is Otherside. Marathon Weekly newspaper just did an article on them but it's not on their website as of right now. Maybe you could email for info. Blair Shiver was the writer. Otherside's website doesn't have anything either.

There is a great new bakery/ice cream shop in town. It is called Sweet Savannah's. The fresh baked bread is to die for! You have to get there early!

They repainted the sign at the Dolphin Research Center - added a couple swirls of yellow. Looks gorgeous. Plus added a baby dolphin under the giant dolphin out front.

Sombrero is looking better and better - new paths, beach grass and stuff.
