Like several others, we queued up to photograph each other next to a large and brightly painted bollard. Not just any bollard, mind, the most southerly bollard in the US! Indisputable proof of having visited Key West.

If you come to Key West you have to get a photo at this location. There isn't much more to say about this.

Stopped here for a picture. The landmark was recently restored due to damage from hurricane. Nice and bright paint.

There was quite the line to take pictures when we visited so we didn't wait in line and just took some pictures on the backside of the marker. The view is amazing and very cool to visit the southernmost point.

Don’t forget to get a photo with Fred the shed while you are at the southern most point! The line can be long but it’s a great photo opportunity

Just a piece of land. Lots of people and not very appealing. Just a hotspot. Something to say you have been there.
