I don't even know if I can call this a tourist trap since it's free to look at... but it's just kind of not exciting. I guess it's cool to think about being at the "Southernmost Point" but the actual southernmost point is located on a private lot that is inaccessible but visible from this landmark (and not a pretty...

We walked here after dinner, and thankfully the throngs of people wanting to get their picture taken by the buoy were non-existent.

Be prepared to wait in line for a picture with the landmark. Was so hot that day we just took a picture of it as we walked by. Glad we got to see it.

We passed by a few times and there were few people taking photos, unfortunately we chose a very busy time to stop by. The people that were there were very orderly and respectful of each other by simply forming a line and waiting their turn. This was amazing since we've been to other popular sights that were practically free for... More

want your photo taken here? Be prepared to wait in a long line as the sun beats down on you! Walking distance from the cruise ship docks.

Had to see it while in Key West, but nothing special, just a buoy at the end of a street....not nearly as big as I thought it would be. Also - false advertising, the southern-most point is actually further south of this location, but is part of a Navy base (or some kind of base), so off-limits to visitors.

One mile walk from Mallory Square. The southernmost point in the United States. It is definitely worth the visit. Right off the Atlantic.

go to the end of Duvall's Street and turn right for one block. Then get in line to take a nice touristy picture. Actually it seems that their are more southern points, but I will take their word for it.
