A must see when in Key West. Stand behind it and your the most Southern Point! Usually a long photo opp line. If you don't want to wait, walk behind it and take a picture - no wait as long as you don't mind not having the Southern Most Point words in your photo.

Plan to spend about 5 minutes taking photos at this marker which designates the southernmost point of the U.S. Go early in the morning or you will have to add about 20 minutes of wait time for your photo op.

Ok so a line to take a picture is pretty much unavoidable. Still a must see even if u don't want to wait. It's the southern most point in the U.S. Just had to stop. And is an easy walk from the main parts of Key West / Duval St.

It was cool but the line to just take a picture next to it was super long and other tourists take forever. It's great to say you've seen it and maybe snap a selfie but other than that there is not much else to it. One awesome thing nearby is this guy with a bunch of coconuts in the back... More

Cool place if there wasn't a line around the block to take your selfie with it! Read the plaques too!

Nice to say that you have been there but to be honest there's not a great deal to see for such a significant spot. Good luck trying to get a photograph! The bouy is constantly swarming with tourists. Take a quick look and then get on with seeing the best parts of Key West..

You can't visit key west without getting a pic here. However people queuing up twenty deep for the perfect picture was a bit crazy. You can take a photo off it without queuing but expect to get berated if you try to ruin anyone else's by sneaking for a pic on the other side.

I'm betting that anyone who has ever been to Key West, has a picture of themselves with the huge buoy, Southernmost Point, 90 miles to Cuba. If not a picture, then definitely a Magnet, keychain, shot glass, coffee cup, okay you get the idea. When you do make it to the landmark, don't get discouraged by the line, it moves... More
