“Have to see it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Ok, so it's a cement structure and you wait in line to get your picture taken with it. But when you think about where you are actually standing, it's pretty awesome! Glad we went and glad we waited in line for the pic! It's a must see in Key West!

“Busy but worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

It's kind of crazy people trying to lining up to take pictures, but a sure thing to do if you get to Key West. Beautiful views and a great landmark. Be patient if you really want that pic.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

Waited like everone else, picture and gone. Nothing to see, no great panorama, just a concrete landmark to say I was really there.

“A monument”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Yes, its the southernmost point in the continental USA, but seriously...who wants to wait for an hour to get a picture with this weird looking monument?

Very crowded place. Hard to find parking, and takes ages to get a picture with.

If you are not keen of getting a personal picture, (because hey! there is still Puerto Rico below this place and it is one of the 50 states) I believe you have made the right choice and you can see it and go to the next attraction.
