Technically, it's not the southernmost point, but I guess it's good to be a tourist and stop there anyways...

I'd say "meh" - if you want to take your picture in front of it as a memory of being here then you can go and wait in a long line of people seeking to do the same. It's literally just exactly what you see in the picture though, not that special. I wouldn't take the time to specifically go here.

Is this just a big concrete tourist attraction on a corner in Key West? Yes. Is it even technically the Southernmost point in the US? No. Will you encounter an hour long line of tourists waiting to get a picture with it? Yes. Do you really need to wait in aforementioned line to get a picture? No. Should you be a jerk and stand on the side opposite of the line and just take a perfectly timed selfie while the idiots that waited in line switch out from one group to the next? We did, and so did many others while we were there.

Yes...you just have to stop by and get the required obligatory picture of yourself at the iconic cement buoy! I think it's the law :)

You should go for the photo op, but beware the long line of tourists doing the same thing. If you're quick you can get a selfie in while the people in line switch out. There is also a cool statue right next to this, of a man blowing a conch shell, and a street art poem.

Nice photo opportunity. Go early in the morning to avoid a long line.

Been here, done that.
I didn't like Key West so much, I thought it was dirty, but I'm glad I was able to get my pix taken here.

Sort of a necessary stop if you don't plan on returning to Key West any time soon. Three stars means that there isn't much to do at the monument, but wandering around downtown KW is good sightseeing.
