The landmark was easy to find. Funny to stand in line with other tourists to wait our turn to take a photo. Seemed to be a must do and glad we did it and have the photo to prove it! Beautiful view.

There's only one Southernmost Point of USA. Nothing else you can see there but a lot of people lining up so better go early in the morning. It is better to take a picture in the morning because of the sun.

Finally made it to Key West and got my picture too. :) Yay! The people waiting in line were fun to talk with. Everyone was helpful with taking pics for each other. If you're here you should get your pic too!

Approach the iconic concrete mound practically anytime during daylight hours and the tourists will resemble honeybees swarming the hive... literally. If you absolutely have to have a picture taken alongside the behemoth, better get there at sunrise. But truth be told, this is not an official boundary marker for the purpose it is titled. Fact; Key West is the southernmost... More

It is just in the curve of the road. Watching the local Key West info channel you find out several things: 1) this is not the southernmost most point in the continental US, Key west is an island so it doesn't count. 2) not the southernmost point in the US, they goes to Hawaii 3) Not the southernmost most point...

If waiting in line to take a picture at the hunk of concrete that isn't really the southernmost point of the US, then you'll love this place. Otherwise, spend your time enjoying the rest of Key West and skip this.

Look, I hate to tell you it's a drainage cover that's painted but a lot of great things this county is known for get their start that way. It's a must do while in Key West, I recommend getting up early and going when there's nobody there and grabbing breakfast.

What a wonderful place to be at sunset. We were driving doing a bit of site seeing our first evening in the a Keys when we found ourselves at the Southern most point landmark a few minutes before sunset. It was a pretty busy corner especially at sunset and each of us with a camera or a cell phone were... More

Pretty cool. It's hard to believe I made it to the furthest southern point in the U.S. It's at the end of a street. Nothing real fancy. But just a cool factor.

This is just a photo op so you can show your friends back home you've been here. Big deal. No, I have never stopped here for a photo.
