Make it a sunrise experience

Go early or late to miss the crowds. Standing in the mid-day heat behind a herd of tourists is miserable!

Home for me is where my family came from, Cuba. I love that I am just a few miles from where all of my family lived. It is a great spot for a photo and on a dark night with no fog or clouds, you can see the lights from Cuba. We rode our scooters here so it was quick... More

Paid to park on street just down from the concrete point with the convenient credit card parking machine. Only stayed about 7 minutes. There was a very long line to take pictures with the concrete point, but we didn't want to wait to take a shot with the point so we stood on the retaining wall and shot a selfie... More

A must stop if you get to Key West. Stop here, get a picture, then move on to one of the great taverns for a beer or margarita. Thats's about it!

Well - not much to say. It is a giant concrete Hershey's kiss wrapped in rasta wrapping - but when you are in the Keys, you have to see it

A must-see! The line to take a picture was long and sunny...take a hat and a bottle of water. This monument is at the end of street and has a simple setting. No parking at all and there was a funky smell in the area. Still a very cool remembrance of our time in Key West.

We love coming down to the keys once and year and stopping by to take our southernmost photo. Everyone on the line is always happy to snap a photo of your family and you never really wait too long. A must stop for your photo album..

There's not much around to do besides get your picture taken and enjoy a coconut water from a street vendor, but it's still worth the stop.

I would recommend going early in the morning. You can find parking close and there won't be a crowd. Not a lot to see, but a great place to take a picture to remember your trip.
