Go early if you want a photo without standing in line

Everyone does it. So should you. You will have to wait in line for a pic, but you are here so you should do it. You can get pics from the car as you drive by, but why not spend some time and get a momento.

Good picture, a must if you only visit once. It is famous so a line forms starting around 9am and goes throughout the day. Avoid days with a lot of cruise ships in town. Someone will always take a photo for you. Good place to people watch.

Not sure I would want to stand in line to get my picture taken with it. There was a line--cooperative and patient--but I walked by and can say I've been there. Maybe go first thing in the morning to avoid the crowd?

This is defiantly one of the hot tourist spots, so be prepared for lines, and lots of people. You don't really have to stand in line if you just want to get a photo, you can stand on a rock wall and get get a pic.

every one wants to get their picture here and the line can be long. It moves slowly as families get multiple shots with multiple arrangements of family members. If you just want a quick shot, go up to the wall curb and stand on it. You usually can get a clean picture when the groups change out

Lots of folks waiting in line to get their photo with this land mark. Not necessary to stand in line tho. Just stand on the rock walll and take your photo, much quicker;)

This attraction marks the southern most point in the US. It is located on Key West Florida and is only 90 miles from Cuba. It was very crowded when we were there due to two cruise ships being in port. We had to wait in line about 30minutes just to take a picture.

The earlier you get there the better. There is usually a bit of a line but most people are friendly and willing to take your picture for you
