Its a nice feeling to know that you are standing at the southernmost point in the continental USA. Depending on the time of the day, you may find it crowded as there are tons of people wanting to capture some memories while there. There was an organized queue in place when i visited. Took me around 15 to 20 minutes... More

Nice place to visit, extremely hot and humid. Nice people very friendly. Some restaurants close by 10 pm specially the ones at the Marina. Stores are a little expensive.

LONG lines all day long. Go there early and if possible on a Sunny day. The place per se it's not beautiful but it's the most famous LANDMARK in Key West. Also, don't go at night. We DID go at night once with my husband and 2 old men were totally drunk. In the end we had a big laugh... More

We love the state of Florida. Anywhere you go creates a beautiful vacation experience for your family. After staying 2 days in Miami, my family decided to drive to Key West. It's a 4 hour drive. But wait, it's not a long, boring and tiring drive. Along the way, you will be astonished by the scenic views. You can stop... More

Line was 45 minutes long. Too hot and humid to stand in line. But we can now say we've been there, done that. If coming from the cruise port, we walked to the southernmost point, and took a taxi back. To my family, the best part about Key West was all the roosters and chickens all out and about.

I rounded the corner and saw a line of people waiting to take pictures. It was neat that so many people were being courteous enough to wait in the line to get their picture taken so that others were not in it. Definitely a quick bucket list item to check off.
