This is a hot spot for tourist to get they're picture here so be prepared to stand in line. There are your few rude people that think they don't need to wait in line and just jump in front of you and snap some pics....More

This is a 'required' stop for every visitor to Key West so expect a line to get to take your place beside the iconic marker for a picture. Parking is tricky but worth the brief visit.

Interesting, crowded if you want picture by yourself. Worth seeing trolleys go by. Most southern point in continents US Just a short distance from Cuba

Not worth the wait. Long line at all hours. Easier to buy a post card. Pretty area of Key West by bike.

Great place to check off your bucket list and take photos. Also some plaques giving a history of that area.

Be prepared to wait in line to get your photo here. Must pay to park and ask a stranger to snap a photo of you. But cool photos!

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

Only if you enjoy walking and have lots of time. It's a very long walk. Opposite end of the cruise ship port. I suggest you Take the trolley tour, there's one that allows you to hop on and off all day. Since you have limited... More
