Long lines for picture. But worth the wait! Very interesting. And there's a lot of kiosk next to it that sell water, snow cones and coconut water.

It's not really the southernmost point, just look at a map. But it's a tourist thing to do. When I was there people were being very polite and waiting in line to take a photo with the obelisk.

It's amazing to find yourself at the southernmost part of the US. To realize how close Cuba is.This was a popular site for tourists to take pictures

Waited in line to get a picture taken. it was very hot. Cool marker but nothing too exciting other than Cuba is 90 miles away from there.

Can be very busy at times and you may have to wait in line to get your picture taken. You can photo yourself with your own phone. There is no fee to see this attraction. Nice one to check off a bucket list

When you visit Key West you have to stop at this iconic landmark. It is just cement and available for photos 24 hours a day. If it is crowded then try another time.

Great for a photo, must be done, but can be very busy, long lines around lunchtime and weekends. You can use the hop on hop off trolley bus to get there, $20 and we got a comp day thrown in.

It is not far off of Duval Street. I am not sure about the public transportation because we walked everywhere.

Only if you enjoy walking and have lots of time. It's a very long walk. Opposite end of the cruise ship port. I suggest you Take the trolley tour, there's one that allows you to hop on and off all day. Since you have limited... More
