About these ratings

One of the most popular things to do in Key West is to snap a photo with the colorful buoy marking the southernmost point of the United States. Sitting at the intersection of Whitehead and South Streets, the striped buoy is only around 90 miles north of Cuba. Next to it, you'll also find a plaque dedicated to Cubans who have lost their lives trying to reach America.

Keep in mind though, that this isn't truthfully the southernmost point -- just to the west of the buoy is a patch of land that is property of the Navy and closed to the general public.
