This is just a fun attraction to have your picture taken in front of the marker. Many people have the same idea and there was actually a waiting line to take your photograph.

Landmark in Key West declaring zero distance to South. Southern most point is identified by the bouy erected in 1983. It represents the southernmost end of US Continenent beyond which is the Gulf of Mexico. 94 miles will drop you in the City of Havana in Cuba.

Great little photo spot! Expect a little wait as loaded with tourists! And don't expect to stay dry on a windy day here! Waves come crashing over and spraying ! All part of the fun! Defo a place to spend a moment or two!

Cool landmark to see and photograph. Line to take a photo kinda long but not a huge problem. Parking is difficult in the area. Recommend a bike or walk. Fun to see the old architecture in the area.

The Southernmost point is a large buoy that represents the southernmost point in the continental US. Lots of people stop and have their pictures taken by it. The way it is suppose to work is you stand in line and then give your camera to the person behind you to take your parties picture. You can't see Cuba from anywhere... More

I Keep reading everyone complaining that this is just a buoy--and it IS--and that this is not the REAL S'most point--and it's NOT--the real southernmost point is on Navy property nearby, and you can't go there. Take a quick pic and go have a drink--I really can't imagine what you were expecting--the wonderful world of Disney?

We drove by this point a number of times but never wanted to stop and stand in line to just get a picture. Poor parking. I recommend a drive-by but don't waste time waiting to get a picture.

O boy, this is one attraction in Key West you can take a selfie and move on. It says it is 90 miles to Cuba. And where's the road?
