It was cool but the line to just take a picture next to it was super long and other tourists take forever. It's great to say you've seen it and maybe snap a selfie but other than that there is not much else to it. One awesome thing nearby is this guy with a bunch of coconuts in the back... More

Cool place if there wasn't a line around the block to take your selfie with it! Read the plaques too!

Nice to say that you have been there but to be honest there's not a great deal to see for such a significant spot. Good luck trying to get a photograph! The bouy is constantly swarming with tourists. Take a quick look and then get on with seeing the best parts of Key West..

You can't visit key west without getting a pic here. However people queuing up twenty deep for the perfect picture was a bit crazy. You can take a photo off it without queuing but expect to get berated if you try to ruin anyone else's by sneaking for a pic on the other side.

I'm betting that anyone who has ever been to Key West, has a picture of themselves with the huge buoy, Southernmost Point, 90 miles to Cuba. If not a picture, then definitely a Magnet, keychain, shot glass, coffee cup, okay you get the idea. When you do make it to the landmark, don't get discouraged by the line, it moves... More

If you want to say you saw the Southernmost Point I guess this is where you'll have to go but prepare not to see anything grand or noteworthy other than a vast ocean view. You basically line up on the sidewalk and wait your turn to get your photo taken beside the marker. Usually the person behind you is more... More

The southernmost point is an iconic landmark in keywest and USA, I can't imagine trace,Ingalls here without getting this pic to memorialize the moment. Be prepared for crowds that form a line and are happy to take a picture of your group for the exchanged favor.

What you see in the picture is what you get - a big buoy that marks the southernmost point in the US. Although the actual point is just southwest of here on the US Naval station land. There were a line of people waiting to get pictures taken so you might have to wait 5-10 minutes unless you want to... More
