Key West attractions of interest are all within walking distance. We did not see anyone on tour bus including hop on/off get off for picture taking. I recommend you put on your walking shoes to avoid the hassle of parking anywhere and allow flexibility in your schedule. This southernmost point is a concrete structure with words describing its location. (90... More

The idea of being at the southern most point is super fun. However, because it's super fun it is also super busy. Waiting to get a picture can take a bit of time. Love the Keys and can't wait to go back!

I don't really get the appeal of these stupid things, but I guess it's something to walk to and you need a goal when you're walking for exercise so you say "I'm going to walk to..." and this could be one of those things you walk to and see and then leave. Fine I get that part, but to be... More

A well known US landmark so, I guess a good a place as any for that selfie. Be prepared for a queue (line) and the obnoxious who won't wait their turn or get in the way of others photos. If a snap here is a must time your visit wisely.

We did a day trip to KeyWest while visiting Fort Lauderdale for Spring Break. From reading the reviews previously I was sort of concerned about the wait in line. It wasn't that bad. We took our picture around 730pm so the line wasn't that long, but the sun was beginning to set. It was about a 20 minute wait and... More

Having seen the north end of Route 1 we wanted to see this landmark and was pleased to find it fairly easy to see first thing in the morning. It is a classic piece and should not be missed. If you go later in the day have patience as people will be lined up for the photo opt.

Interesting stop but make sure you go early in the morning. The rest of the day it is absolutely jam-packed with long lines of people waiting to take their turn at getting a picture. The lines weren't worth it to us so we moved on.

We made this a "must stop" on our short afternoon in Key West on 3/17/15. The line was too long for us to wait and make individual pics, so we just walked up and took pics with others standing around. Just for what it is, you can't miss it if you're in Key West and the price is right (free).... More

Loved the view and beauty of this point. We parked right there and stood in line for about five minutes to get our picture taken. Had a nice woman take our pictures and then we took her pictures.
