Date of visit: Friday, March 14, 2014 This is a very interesting journey: as you may have seen in the pictures on trip advisor's webpage, it is just a concrete statue with color paints and words on it, that's it !!! But what makes it interesting is the whole neighbourhood. But before I get into that, let's get back to... More

Doesn't take much time to take a picture there...beautiful view of the ocean. Get in line for pictures and ask those ahead of you to take your picture or offer to take theirs!

Free must do for a first trip with family. Get there before the cruise ships dock and bring a water bottle for waiting in line.

Went here on our first day in Key West. It was mid afternoon and apparently a good time to go because we didn't have to wait in line. Apparently if you go early in the day there is a line to go up to it and have your picture taken next to it. Only 90 miles to Cuba is you... More

The Southernmost Point was interesting but keep in mind you have to stand in line for a bit to take a picture with it. But it's a good keepsake!!

A fun spot to see in Key West, considering it's the closest point to Cuba from the US. You might have trouble getting a picture up close as the line for the many tourists is usually down the street. Other than that, it was good to see and experience first hand.

Ya might as well stop to get a picture while your there but be prepared to wait in a line. It was okay. Opted to take a quick picture in between the people posing instead of waiting in line.

You have to stop at the Southernmost Point during a stay in Key West. It is a must for any tourist. Stand in line and make friends as these are the people that will surely be taking your picture when it is your turn.

Even though the lines are long, waiting is hot and boring, and it generally isn't a fun thing to do, you have to visit the marker because it does signify the most southern point of USA. And you were there. There are also a lot of other attractions and sights to see in the 4 blocks getting to and leaving... More
