This is very nice place to take several pictures. There is not much else to do, beside contemplate the beautiful view of the sea! Around this place you will find little shops and restaurants. We rented a scooter to drive around key west. It was the best thing we did, especially since we were staying only two day. We got... More

We rode our bikes past here one day. I saw a line of tourists waiting to get a picture of it. A line to take a picture? I mentioned to my husband that by looking at the map if Key West, Higgs Beach, among other places, appears further south than "Southernmost Point." Then a few days later I was watching... More

This wa a cool spot, but the line was way too long to get a picture. It is a fun drive by. The history about the surrounding homes was interesting.

Okay fine. It's the southernmost point in the United States. Every tourist to Key West wants to have their picture taken standing next to it. However, when we were here on a Wednesday afternoon, there was a line 15 people long waiting to have their photo taken. It's not worth that so we just snuck around to the back and... More

Not really much to see and nothing more to do than join the queue and take the obligatory photo, but at least you can say you've been to the Southernmost Point!

It is pretty cool to get to the end of the Florida keys. I also like the idea of this marker for the Southernmost point. Anyhow, if you can cope with queue-ing for 30 mins to get your photo taken then go ahead. It is more interesting to look at those older homes and hotels that surround that corner. They're... More

Yes, yes it's fun to say you've been to the Southernmost Point but it is nothing special. This is not something you should be disappointed about missing. If you really want to see you can just drive right by it there is nothing else to see or do there than what you see in the picture above.

It's always good to be able to say you've been to the southernmost point of continental USA. Prepare to queue for 10mins in the hot sun to be able to take a photo though!

Yes its touristy yes its a hike but hey its free. There will be a line of people lined up to get their picture taken. Great way to get a group pic. You take theirs they take yours. While you are down in that area of the Island check out the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory and Louis' Backyard... More
