Southernmost Point

Member Rating 2 out of 5 by lisanti on March 28, 2001

We knew we had to see it. It is after all, the southernmost point of the continental United States, and only 90 miles to Cuba. So, one day, we rode our bikes down there and there it was: a huge red and yellow concrete buoy surrounded by people. People everywhere: climbing on the buoy, taking pictures, driving by, tour groups, people milling around the table full of 'Southernmost Point' souvenirs.

It was late afternoon, and probably one of the most popular times of day to visit this monument, but still, we were not too impressed. It was just a tourist attraction, with not much else to offer. Sure it was neat to see, but there are much better places to waste your time and film in Key West.
