The Southernmost Point

Everyone's favorite photo op

Where South Street meets Whitehead Street, there’s no mistaking the giant painted buoy that marks the southernmost point in the continental United States. And there’s always a line for that photo you need to post online.

Here’s the catch: this isn’t the actual southernmost point. But it makes a good photo. It’s the southernmost point for us civilian visitors to Key West, since the geographic southernmost point is within the guarded gates of the Naval Air Station Key West.
