This is just a photo opportunity area. Very close to the water. Feeling the breeze was great. Nice way to start a vacation as we walked around.

We had to go to see it but it wasn’t worth it. There was a line up the street to get a photo at the Southernmost point (which isn’t even the Southernmost point). People were lining up for ages in the baking heat to stand...More

A very popular point to have your photo of the most southerly mainland point in the USA. Expect to queue but worth the effort.

This was a spot that we found was a must see. It was a great photo op. It does tend to get crowded, since it is a tourist spot. Was great to get pictures and be able to say that we were here.

This is really popular so bear in mind that the queues to have a photo with the marker are long unless you’re there early or later on in the day.

A line for the photo, but a must when visiting Key West. People in line were super helpful and cooperative. A tradition you should not miss.

This is one of the most iconic spots in Key West since it is locales in the southernmost point in the USA. This is just a place to take a cool and classic picture but that’s it.

The lines were long during the day, so plan on a wait if you want a picture. However after dark, there were only a few others around.

You can swing by in a car and run out and grab a photo. Not sure if their really is the southernmost point when you look at a map. It is a must see when in Key West.
