This is not a major attraction to me but if your going to Key West why not see it. The crowds there were bad and makes it hard to get a picture of just the marker. You will have to stand in line for quite a while to get a good picture with the marker.

This is interesting enough, but there were over 30 people in line on a relatively slow day and I am sure the line gets much longer, so plan for this if you can. Time your visit early if you can. Yes it is unique, but the marker is not the Statue of Liberty and you need to decide if you... More

Took pictures at Southernmost Point with some friends. It is definitely worth the drive to Key West, but try to stay 2-3... More

Great picture to have but you will be standing in a long line. Get out there early and beat the crowd.

Get there early! There is Line all day. It can get lengthy. Everyone seemed very willing to take pictures of each other. Nice view at the end of the island and the southern most point.

Not much to do there but you might as well get your picture taken there. After all, you are in Key West.

Every time I come here there is a ridiculous line but it's cool to get your photo by it. Last time I snuck down at night to get my photo by it. This time I just hopped up on the little wall and took a selfie

Extremely popular with first timers. Couldn't really see it as there was a mob of Asian tourists all around it snapping photos. Not exactly this peaceful photo.

It's definitely touristy, but fun nonetheless. But do get there early to avoid the lines of people lining up to get a photo!
