Southernmost Point, Key West

3.6
The very tip of the southeastern United States, Southernmost Point, is a popular spot for photos. A sign once marked the spot, but a more permanent concrete buoy stands at the lookout point today. The attraction's name is misleading--the actual southern point is in a private yard next to the buoy's location--but it’s close.

  • This place is a great place to stand in a long line to take a selfie with the Point Marker. Do yourself a favor if the line is a block long, find another time. Also remember that Key West has people.....  more »
  • If you're really into standing photographing yourself at the supposedly southernmost point of the U.S. - though Google Maps begs to differ slightly in Key West - this may be the stop for you. We...  more »
  • One of those must stops for a 1st timer. Large crowd with a pretty long line of people waiting their turn for individual pictures. We opted for a causal approach from a distance. Come later time...  more »

  • Great place for a picture!! Arrive early to get a shot or might have to wait in line. There usually is a cart with coconut water and pin-a-colada; maybe a good idea to hydrate while waiting. Also, would highly recommend renting a scooter to visit this place to avoid long walk or parking.
  • Honestly nothing much there but was a bucket list item, there was a line to take photos with it but it’s just at the end of the road, mostly housing around. We walked from around Mallory square and in about a mile we hit “mile 0”, the Hemingway house, and the southernmost point. Was a nice little walk to get in the sights, but remember that as you go towards it you’re going away from the restaurants, bathrooms, banks etc.
  • I mean, it is what it is. The big touristy lump of concrete. The real actual southernmost tip is nearby on that navy base, but obviously the Navy won't let you out there. it's just a bit of a bummer that you can see land sticking further out South and you can't get to it. it was nice, though, because even though this was a moderately busy touristy area even very early in the morning on a Sunday, everybody lined up peacefully and calmly and the person behind you in line took your picture with your phone and everybody just took turns.
  • This is a fun visit if you happen to be in Key West since it is such a notable and popular landmark. It is very busy making it hard to get a good picture without standing in line but it can be done. Easy to find and I am sure all the tours will take you past it. Great picture oppurtunity!
  • Very nice place to visit. Not sure how people live there to be honest its not very hype as people make it out to be. But if you enjoy peace, quiet and calmness. This is the place for you. Overall, food places here are good, plenty of stores for the shoppahaulics. And plenty to visit.
