A marker at the very bottom of the continental United States. Usually a long photo line but worth the wait if having your picture at that location is what you want.

Long lines so people can get their picture with this location. Very little street parking. Lots of cars driving by just to see this site.

I guess it is a landmark but it is not worth queuing for in the heat in my opinion. We walked past it at night and asked someone to take a quick photo :)

Well we can say we did it. Nothing great to see. If you go the wait is about 10 minutes if the line is 1/2 way down the block.
