The most southern point of the United States and you have to take a picture here. The line is long most of the time but we came about 8:30am while on our walk and there was only two other families there so we were able...More

Nothing exciting here just a long line of people waiting to take their picture. After walking several blocks in the heat, we wondered why.

There was a very long line to just take a picture. It is located right off the road so it was a very busy spot.

I really mean it--it's a "A Once In A Lifetime Experience". You just have to do it when you first come to Key West, but only ONCE! Totally free, but at peak times street parking can be challenging. The view is great; take a few...More

When you are in Key West, you just gotta visit the Southernmost Point and have your picture taken. Part of the Key West experience! It's nothing too exciting, but still fun to do. There will be a bit of a line but it moves quickly...More

Just knowing that we were 90 miles from Cuba, brings you to understand how close freedom is for those who hadn't experienced it ever. The lines were long to get a picture but well worth the wait talking to others.

We just too a photo of the marker and moved on. Long lines and lots of people crowding around it. Felt very touristy to do.

An iconic place to visit! We went there by night, so there was much less people, wich is better to take the usual picture!

There is a marker here that you take your picture with; not sure what the excitement is about. People politely wait in line and it seems the next group takes the pictures for the group in front of them. We took our picture and moved...More

It is not far off of Duval Street. I am not sure about the public transportation because we walked everywhere.
Can you walk there from the cruise port and how long would it take ? Thanks
