Go early...definitely a must for any KW traveler!! There is a line that gathers around 8....best to get there before 9 to avoid long lines and the heat.

Neat to see but we didn't wait in extremely long line to get picture next to it we was in electric car so we drive almost right to it snapped picture and drove on. To much other things to do with only being there one day.

If you go during the day, expect a long line. There's no way I am standing in line to take a picture when there's so much to do in Key West. We went late at night and there were only a couple people there...sure the picture isn't as glamorous as a daytime shot,but a decent camera with a flash gets... More

This is a very touristy spot and after waiting in line for quite some time we decided just to take a picture from the street . It was difficult finding a parking for this quick stop. I recommend going super early in the day if you want a picture .

This is a fun monument to see. It's always busy with people taking pictures so you can either stand in line or just try to take a pic of it between people. There are two geocaches there so that's fun if you play.

This is definitely something worth seeing once while in the Keys. However, the line yo take a photo next to the marker on the day we went spanned the length of a city block. Just drove by in our cart and snapped a picture instead.

Quite a lot is "Southernmost" In Key West, and this is the true landmark. Therw is a line for taking pictures, but you can get a shot from a distance. This is One thing in Key West that has not changed for decades.

As many reviews before me state, this is a 'must do' when you are visiting Key West and we did. We got in line and waited 15 minutes before it was our turn to have our picture taken! The monument marking the most southern point of the USA is an anchored bouy made of concrete, placed by the city of... More
