We visited this at night as we had seen it during the day on previous visits . No crowds / long lines to wait in if you go at night !

And it costs you nothing, but honestly!?! Go there, take the compulsory photo, but don't get too excited. There was a queue for photos 100 yards long when we arrived. Why? not entirely sure! So you can hols your keyring up next to a photo of you at that place!?!?!

There are certain places and things that are mandatory when visiting places, and a photo in front of the Southern most point buoy is one in Key West We did just that in this visit, and can check this off the list!

It's a nice walk to find this point and it's on all the tour bus routs, it does get busy at times. Everyone automatically queues and if you don't have some to take your pic there is lady's of friendly helpers. This point is easy to get to and on flat ground with no stairs and it's also free, it's... More

This is a must for visitors to Key West, if for no reason other than to take pictures and to be able to tell your friends that "I was there.".

Going to the southernmost point was really fun. You are able to take a picture with the iconic attraction. There was a long line but it went by extremely fast.

It's a southernmost point of continental US. Not much else to say about it but still it makes a good photo!

Must do/see... depending upon the time you go there may be a line getting your picture taken here. Parking spots are easily accessible. Be prepared to walk and soak up the city, or jump on a bicycle.

A bit anticlimactic. There are birds of crowds and the location is abbot out of the way. If you are in the area or want a photo to commentate your trip it is worth a stop.
