Look for a short line...

So you gotta get this photo op if you are in KW for a short time. Just look for the line of tourists to be at a minimum. People were kind about taking a photo and we of course... read more

This place has alot of traffic and you will wait a short period of time for a photo. There is plenty of parking in the area. There were approximately 50-75 people here taking photo's but the lines goes very quick.

We learned that the real southermost point is located on the Navy Base adjacent to this area, but as the public is not allowed access to that area - the southermost point resides where it does. Arrive early in the morning and you won't have to battle the endless line of other tourists to take your photo. If you're hot... More

If this is one of your stops, get here early in the morning, or you may not get a chance to take some photos. there is usually a line of people waiting to take photos.

The line for this must-see spot starts early, and in high season is ridiculous. We opted to take a bus tour that took us by the attraction, and we just have a photo of the Southern-most Point, along with the line approaching it. For me, that was plenty. I can say "Been there done that." But if you insist on... More

Interesting in concept, but the long line for a photo opp made it not worth waiting. We were there. Not much more to say.

Get there in the early morning before 9 AM and there wasn't a crowd. Just enough people to help you take a photo - remember to return the favor. Neat monument.

There is a nice view, and it is pretty cool to be at the Southest point of the US. You can see the water.

Skip the line and stand from the street and take a picture while someone walks away. Its not worth waiting in line to stand next to it and take a picture. I took a great picture of it when some people were walking away, it took me 5 minutes and I was able to get back on the bike and... More

Just 90 miles to Cuba from this point and most everyone wants a picture here. The line gets very long. But don't waste your time on the line. Instead walk just past the buoy, then stand to the right side of it angling to get the wording in, wahla, you have a great picture with water in the background and... More
