Love this spot. It was the first thing we did. Stood in line, chatted with everyone while we waited for our picture opportunity. It was great, the person behind takes the picture for the person ahead and so on. Everyone is friendly, a welcoming way to begin a vacation!!

We arrived here at around 11am on our bicycles. There was a queue of around 30 metres. We joined the queue and were standing have our photo in front of the marker in about 10 minutes. All tourists were conscience of the queue so didn't fuss around, we may have got lucky. Just one of those things you do when... More

Like the old saying in the police films... carry on, there is nothing to see here. There really is isn't anything to see here but a giant chunk of metal and concrete with the moniker, Southernmost Point in the Continental USA. While it is actually not true, it is close enough. If you are in Key West and you don't... More

While it's just a landmark, it is pretty cool to say you've been there and to snap a quick photo. There is ALWAYS a line but it goes fast...or you can just kind of take your photo from the side if you don't mind people in your back ground.

Ok, this is a quickie. We went at lunch time and the line just to get a picture was a block long. We came back at night and got a great picture with no line. Nothing really to see. Picture and go.

A place for a photo opportunity. Not much around here. Usually a lineup to get to take a picture. We waited about 10 minutes

A very busy little corner of Key West. It was fun to take photos of other tourists and realize that Cuba is only 90 miles away. It is surrounded by beautiful homes. It only takes a few moments to do something neat!

A famous landmark / photo op / Key West main stay. Just don't waste your precious vacation time on line. Get there about 8:30 , take your pictures, feed a chicken. TIP : Opening at 9:00 and 2 blocks away is the highly rated Butterfly and Nature Conservatory (about an hour to see). Your welcome.
