    Wave to Cuba! Only 90 miles to Havana and 160 or so to Miami.

    This of course is NOT the 'southernmost point'. That point is just a little further west on military property, so this is the southernmost point that is publicly accessible.

    At this point you are closer to Cuba than to a Wal-Mart... Weird but true!

    Go and take your picture next to the beacon on the corner of whitehead and south street

    Welcome to the Southern Most Point in the continental USA. Biggest tourist spot in Key West. On a clear day with a little help from binoculars you can see Cuba. Long lines usually for pictures.

    Technically, the southernmost point on key west is on private land, so this is the southermost point tourists can go. But, the actual southermost point in Florida is Ballast Key, southwest of Key West

    Be prepared to wait in line for a photo. Or do what we do - drive by and click one.

    If you go at night, you have zero line-ups to get your picture taken at the massive landmark.

    I can totally see Alaska from here! (that's a joke at Sarah Palin's expense BTW).

    Cross your fingers and toes that you don't get there at the same time as a group of cruise ship passengers. Be prepared to wait in line if you want a photo! It's worth it! :-)

    If you don't care who is in the picture, skip the line that forms and snap a quick pic.

    A must do photo stop. There will be a line, but it moves pretty quickly.

    Don't stand behind the monument when others are trying to take nice pictures. Nobody wants the memory of your ugly face, douchebag.

    It was worth it! The crazy, adventurous, sometime dangers, NOT so exciting, somewhat scenic ride from #Miami to #KeyWest!!

    Key West'e gelip ABD'nin en güney ucunu işaretleyen bu anıtı görmemek olmaz ama fotoğraf çektirmek için sıra beklemeyi göze alacaksınız. Ayrıca gün batımını da izleyebilirsiniz buradan.

    Красиво)Город потрясающий. Обязателен для посещения! Думаю пару дней спокойно найдете чем заняться)

    Эта штука должна была бы стоять еще на 4 мили к юго-востоку, ближе к Кубе. Но, увы, там военная база, и туристов туда не пускают. Так что поставили, где поставили. И очередь туда не иссякает.

    90 miglia da Cuba, solo questo vale la visita.
