The very tip of the southeastern United States, Southernmost Point, is a popular spot for photos. A sign once marked the spot, but a more permanent concrete buoy stands at the lookout point today. The attraction's name is misleading--the actual southern point is in a private yard next to the buoy's location--but it’s close. Put Southernmost Point into our Key West sightseeing planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

To do even if there is the queue to take the picture
É o ponto mais ao sul dos Estados Unidos (90 milhas apenas de Cuba). Costuma ter uma pequena fila para tirar fotos. Estacionar próximo, mesmo na rua, custa em media de $3,50 ppr hora. more »It is the southernmost point of the United States (90 miles only from Cuba). You usually have a small line to take pictures. Parking nearby, even on the street, costs in average of $3.50 PPR hour.
Great place for a picture!! Arrive early to get a shot or might have to wait in line. There usually is a cart with coconut water and pin-a-colada; maybe a good idea to hydrate while waiting. Also, would highly recommend renting a scooter to visit this place to avoid long walk or parking.
Honestly nothing much there but was a bucket list item, there was a line to take photos with it but it’s just at the end of the road, mostly housing around. We walked from around Mallory square and in about a mile we hit “mile 0”, the Hemingway house, and the southernmost point. Was a nice little walk to get in the sights, but remember that as you go towards it you’re going away from the restaurants, bathrooms, banks etc.
