It’s a good spot to take a photo. Long waits in the heat can make you wanna think twice. Good photo op

When you travel that far south you have to make it to the southern most point! There isn't much to it besides the statue but a must do. There was a long line to wait to take a picture directly in front of it, so...More

A beautiful monument that everyone visits when coming to Key West. From this point you are only 90 miles from Cuba. Everyone wants a picture next to this buoy.

The Southernmost point of the US in Key West is marked by a very large buoy-shaped sculpture marking the spot and the fact that it’s only 90 miles to Cuba. Many tourists lube up to take photos here, so it’s pretty crowded. But if you’re...More

Being one of the most iconic sites in Key West, it is one you just need to stop and take a photo. Interestingly, people calmly queued up and waited for their turn to take the photos, with no one taking very long.

If you want to beat everyone else before a bigger line forms (from your cruise ship) grab a bike or a short cab ride over. Take your picture then walk back leisurely stopping along the way and also get your pic with the... More

It is not far off of Duval Street. I am not sure about the public transportation because we walked everywhere.
