Stop by the Southernmost point in the U.S. Look at the Gulf of Mexico, and take a picture. Fun and done in no more than 180 seconds. But if you want to take a picture next to the monument, go early in the day as a long line forms after 1:00 pm.

The southernmost point was an interesting place to visit. It is very busy . A lot of people there to take pictures. It is a quick stop. It is a nice place for picture taking.

This is a must do, but don't plan your day around it. It's a terrific backdrop for your Facebook post. Sometimes the lines get long so go early or return another time. Make sure to walk around the charming neighborhoods around this crazy monument.

Go early morning if you do not want to wait in a long line! We woke up for sunrise viewing and pictures and headed over to this location with no one the wiser. Took a bike ride about 10:30 am and there was a huge line. A sweet memory!

Try to go early for that it gets crowded and there is a slow moving line. If you travel with young kids could be a challenge on a hot day. It is a must in Key West though.

Long lines to take pictures by this attraction. Nice stroll down from Duval street and back up White street. Nice houses in the area.

Mobbed with cruise ship people. Hit it before they get into port or after and youll be golden. Neat little attraction to visit, knowing youre at the southern most point in the US!

Just one of those quick tourist stops that you will want a photo of. The interesting thing is that people line up in an orderly fashion on their own and give you time to take your photos. Go earlier in the day, the line was shorter.

Imagine you are at the southernmost place in the United States. Cuba is just 90 miles south of this point. Looking over the ocean and taking pictures is an experience you won't forget.
