This is a quick stop!! It's worth stopping for so you can appreciate what the Islanders go through when a hurricane comes through. So many died in this one storm but a lot of the people here say they will "ride out the storm"!!

The monument is right on US 1. Good stop for stretching your legs as it only takes about 15-30 minutes to walk around and read about the monument. We were on a week road trip through the Keys and glad we stopped.
