You gotta go anyway. I’m not even sure this is actually the southernmost point in the US. But it’s very popular. There was a cruise ship docked so the line was long to take a picture at this spot. We waited about a half hour....More

We waited about a half hour to take our picture. However, the line did get long behind us. This is just something fun to do!

If you don't get here before 9, you will be waiting in like for at least 10 minutes and upwards of 30. We got a picture quick while cruising the streets, but chose not to stop and were better for it. It is a tourist...More

It’s just one of those photo ops that you have to do! Very pretty by the water. The line can be long for the photo opportunity

People lined up to take a picture here and this was the off season; however, it is the furthest point it is great shot.

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
