The Southernmost Point

The larger than life concrete buoy marks the Southernmost Point in the continental United States, only 90 miles from Cuba. Located at the corner of South Street and Whitehead Street, it's the backdrop for a Kodak moment for virtually every traveler to Key West, about a million people per year.

The City of Key West erected the now famous monument in 1983 and it is one of the most visited and photographed attractions in Key West.

Southernmost Point is crowded most of the day, beat the lines and go early in the morning to get the wonderful colors of sunrise.

From here it's a short walk to the Hemingway House, the Lighthouse Museum, Fort Zachary Taylor Park and other Key West attractions.
