It's always good to be able to say you've been to the southernmost point of continental USA. Prepare to queue for 10mins in the hot sun to be able to take a photo though!

Yes its touristy yes its a hike but hey its free. There will be a line of people lined up to get their picture taken. Great way to get a group pic. You take theirs they take yours. While you are down in that area of the Island check out the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory and Louis' Backyard... More

If going to Key West a must see but pack you patience. You can get your picture taken with the landmark but usually a line just to do it

Just a photo-op spot. Not even accurate as the most southern point of the U.S.. But a photo spot at the south end of Whitehead Street and send to your friends noting where you are. No other place like it.

The other reviewers are right, there is always a line. But if you need someone else to take the picture of you ad your family or friends together you will have it. Can't come to Key West and not get a photo here! There is metered street parking on the same street. The Zero Mile Marker isn't far from here... More

You can take one of the trolleys to this location. There will more than likely be a line to take a picture at the most southern point in the United States. Key West is just beautiful....

A quick pic and back to the Florida Keys attraction, if you miss it no biggies. BUT if you don't go, you can't say you have been to the Southernmost Point in the continental USA

This is near the main drag in Key West. It is a great photo location. There are always people in line to take a photo here. Parking is scarce in the area. Be sure to feed the meter or you will get a parking ticket.

My husband, daughter and I were on a Carnival cruise which stopped in Key West. We did a walking tour on our own and came to the Southernmost Point. It is a must to have your picture taken by it just to say you were there. We loved Key West, just didn't have enough time as the ship left at... More
