This is a super photo opportunity. You may need to wait in line, but to have this picture is worth it.

Yep, it's a photo op with a line. So it is what it is. The line helps make sure everyone can get the photo they want! So find a treat & hop in line! Looked newly painted, line moved fast in January!

We had a golf cart and drove by. I couldn't stand the thought of waiting in a long line just to get a picture. Many people like that though, just to say that you were there.

Everyone needs their picture by this landmark and the line is long. If you are looking for less crowded times, visit in the evening. It is the iconic photo opportunity and you won't be sorry to have the memory.

There was a huge line to take a photo showing you only 90 miles from Cuba. Maybe that meant more in the old days. What's the point?

I can’t believe people stood in that long line for who knows how long just to get their picture taken at the Southernmost Point. We cheated, like a few other people, and took out pic from atop the brick wall that went around it. Who...More

My family and I traveled here to see the Keys we visited the Southern most point in the US. It's 90 moles to Cuba from there. A very good history story to read while your there and a great photo opportunity.

At night! Sounds funny, but we drove in around 10pm and only one local was sitting at the corner and chatted with us as we sat and exchanged stories. It’s very calm and you’ll get some great photos without the rush of people... More

Sorry for the delayed response. But perhaps it may help someone else if to later for you. Its a pretty good walk straight down Duval street turn right on Southern. Then just a couple short blocks. But doable. You can always... More
