There’s always a swarm of tourists buzzing around this giant buoy in Key West. It’s the southernmost point in the United States, just 90 miles from Cuba. It’s actually closer to Havana than it is to Miami!
There used to be a simple sign on this spot, but thieving tourists kept stealing it. So, in 1983 the city of Key West created a new marker out of a large buoy. Try to steal that!
Key West has a little secret, though. This really isn’t the southernmost point at all! Nope, you can walk just a few feet away, and see that the adjacent naval base actually juts out much farther. But the tourists don’t seem to mind, the buoy works just fine for them.
