Nothing much to see here but if you go as far down as Key West you might as well have a photo taken at this landmark. There is usually a bit of a queue but worth the wait. there is a guy there who will take your photo with your phone for a few dollars.

Usually there's a line of people, but if you go early in the morning it's fairly short. Usually you just give your camera to the person... More

Nothing special, but you have to visit the Southernmost Point while in Key West. We visited around sunset and got some great pictures.

This is a beautiful location to watch a sunset. Can be crowded. It has a safety and security fence which is necessary however, prevents many camera lenses to pass through for a picture.

Hey, if you're in Key West this is something you should do, just like mile marker 0 for Rte 1. Yea, it's "touristy" but you are a tourist, right. Just go do it!

This is a fun stop, went before lunch and spent like 13minutes in line. Photo turned out great with scenic background. Friendly tourist in line took photos for us. Anyone that's been to Key West immediately recognizes the big bouy in our vacation photos!

I expected a lot more. The line was a little long about a 15 minute wait. It's just a buoy painted sitting on a sidewalk. You hand your phone off to someone and they take your picture then the next person goes up and do the same thing.

This place is often crowded, so I recommend getting there early in the morning for smaller lines and good light for the pictures.

It's a buoy that people take pics with to say they have been there. There can be a line depending on time of day or time of year
