Must stop for picture

This is a brisk walk from Duval Street, but worth a stop for a picture. There is usually a line but it goes fast.

I'm not sure why but hundreds of people flock in line to get their picture taken in front of a marker that says southern most point. That's it. There's nothing else to it. You stare at the marker you nod your head up and down and walked back to wherever you came from.

Because this is a popular attraction for the cruise ship patrons, it will be crowded from 9-4:30. We had to stand in line for about 20 minutes in order to take our picture there.

Silly unaesthetic object, overhyped, many other southern most views that are similar without the hype, tourist tourist tourist. Nearby restaurants and stores get more money mileage from proximity to this tourist mecca

If you stop in Key West, you've got to stop and see the "Southernmost Point" marker. When we visited the marker, there was a short line for photos, but the line went quickly. The marker indicates that you are at the southernmost point of the United States and only 90 miles from the Country of Cuba.

Join the line and step on the spot just 90 miles from Cuba. Very touristy but you must stop here when you are in Key West.

We saw this from a train tour we took. The line was hours long just to take a picture at this spot. How much is the picture worth?

Tourist flock to have their picture taken at this spot. I know because I had taken of my wife and me. If you have the time, it's a nice thing to do and a picture is a fun souvenir, but I wouldn't make a special trip.
