When we were last there, there was a line of people to have their pictures taken at the Southernmost Point! We had to wait for a few minutes for just the right moment to grab a photo without people hugging the icon.

We had the time of our lives!:) I would highly recommend staying here to anyone. The rooms are immaculate, the staff fantastic. Linda, Bobbie and Beth are the dream team. Full breakfast was great. Happy hour fun and the beach across the street. It was the best vacation we have had in a long time.

Once you see it and have a picture made , that will be it. But ..seriously ..you can tell people you stood at the edge of the United States of America . 90 miles from Cuba. It is worth the experience at least once.

Take great photos on this landmark at Key West - only 90 miles to Cuba! Expect long lines so plan ahead.

Wonderful hotel walking distance to private beach! The Southernmost Hotel collection is located at the quiet end of Duval street and i is very close to the beach, restaurants and shopping! I would recommend to families as well as couples. There are adult only swim and lounge areas for couples.

If you're visiting Key West and not sure if you will be back this photo is well worth it! There's a few vendors selling snow cones and coconut drinks and roosters walking in the street. It was fun for me and my family!

This place is an absolute tourist trap, there are lines of people waiting to take pictures next to the concrete buoy. However, it's a must do and a must see, the southernmost point of the USA, well worth the walk down and the picture!

A Simple Marker showing the southern-most point in the United States. There was a line of people waiting to take a photos around the marker. It is on the tourist checkoff list if you visit the Florida Keys.
