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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Key West holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Southernmost Point and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The must have photo opportunity from your time in Key West! Great little stop, especially earlier in the day when there’s no line.

  • So apparently this isn't the southernmost point. The actual point is on a naval base and you can't go to it. But wait in line, take a pic, say you been there. No need to do it more than once in a.....  more

  • The closest I can be to my place of birth.
  • It's a small tourist picture type of spot at the southern most end of Key West. This is the southern most point in the continental U.S. and it's a fun way to capture a moment. There was a small line when we arrived of persons waiting to take their pictures, but everyone was patient and amiable. The bell marker is well kept and has a bold paint that shows up nicely in photos for a great keepsake item. Lots of shops in the area sell fun frames that would go well with this photo, so be sure to check those out as well. Fun Fact: Hawaii is the southern most state in the U.S. and Alaska has the special honor of being the Northern, Western AND Eastern most state in the U.S. ... it crosses the meridian line, so it's East AND West :) Fun trivia knowledge for ya. Overall: A Great photo stop off for keepsake memories. It's just a tourist spot and this is all there is down there, but it's only a few short blocks from the Hemingway House and other items of interest.
