Must Stop Photo Opp Sep 13, 2011
Everyone who comes to Key West drops by here for the famous photo snuggled up to the large buoy marking the southernmost spot in the continental U.S. If it's a hot day, you might buy a coconut from a stand here to cool you off waiting your turn in line. Chickens are usually close by, we saw a hen with chicks once.

Take the time to get your photo taken here by the person in line behind you (everyone does this) and you'll have a Christmas card photo ready in minutes to remind you of a warm day waiting in line for this cute photo!

Southernmost Point in the Continental US Nov 23, 2010
This is pretty much a must-do attraction at least once when visiting Key West, FL. It's relatively easy to get to from the cruise ships or anywhere else for that matter. Just walk down Duval Street (the main drag) towards the ocean, when you get into the neighborhood of the Southernmost everything (SMost House, SMost Hotel, SMost T-Shirt Shop, etc), just go one street over.

There's no charge. Just get in line and wait for your turn, the person behind you will take your picture for you, as you have probably already done so for the person in front of you.

It's not actually the southernmost point as you can see a house on land farther south from the point, but it's the southernmost point in the continental US that ISN'T private property, so I guess that's something.

90 Miles to Cuba!
The people behind you in line will…

Hey, it's only 90 miles to Cuba!!!!! Or so the buoy says. You won't see and cubans in inner tubes trying to paddle to florida so you don't have to bring your binoculars or spend forever behind the monument looking for them. trust me people were trying to see them, it was actually pretty funny watching those people. Everyone is very courteous and waits turns to take pictures and feel free to ask some one to snap a photo of you group for you so you can all be in the picture. When you get there BE PATIENT... there is usually a pretty long line for pictures and almost always busy. If you go during the Mallory Square Sunset the ruch of people will be less or wait to go around the dinner rush, if waiting in line is an issue. It's a must see and everyone has to get their picture taken with it. We did.
