Go take pictures at this attraction. The line can get long, but the people were pleasant...you can make new friends while in line. Everyone seemed to be willing to take pictures for the family in front of them.

This was our first time to the Keys and I couldn't wait to see the southernmost point. What a neat town to visit and the sunsets are beautiful.

Worth the view. Be sure to take a picture as several people in line will do it. Watch out for the waves coming in.

This is one of those touristy places you just have to go at least once. Get your picture taken there so you can say you have. It's worth it and free!

What more can you say? This is a photo op that everyone must take :) Sometimes there is a line, so be prepared to stand for a little while and take some sun screen with you.

Go early and avoid the crowd for taking a picture. This really is an attraction invented for the tourist but not bad.

Go early or you may wait a while. We were walking early one morning, and came upon this site. Everyone in line was gracious enough to take the time, to take pictures of you.

This is a typical tourist attraction that everyone lines up to take a photo at, but the line moves pretty quickly and, why not check it out? It is, after all, at the southernmost tip of the U.S. so it's kind of cool.

It is not far off of Duval Street. I am not sure about the public transportation because we walked everywhere.
Can you walk there from the cruise port and how long would it take ? Thanks
