It is the southernmost point in the continental United States. Why wouldn't you want to go there and snap a picture. Only a 90 mile swim to Cuba from here.

Nice to see it once. Had to make a line to get a photo (no shadow provided). A must see on Key West. Could be boring for kids.

It's a historical place to have your picture taken! A good walk from Duvall and Truman streets! Nothing not to like!

Don't forget to stop at the Southernmost Point. Get in line to take your picture (because there's almost always a line). Have someone take your picture and then offer to do the same for them.

We went here simply for the picture. Followed the advice of getting there before ten to avoid the line of people waiting to take pictures. Only three people ahead of us.

If you are in key west you have to go to take a picture to say you been there. It gets pretty crowded as the night falls.
