Southernmost Point Key West FL.

We had this picture taken while we were visiting Key West Florida. This is the most southern point in the continental United States.  After walking along quaint narrow streets lined with cottages on the historic southern end of the island, you will find yourself here, 90 miles from Cuba. Visitors from all over the United States and the world gather here to chat amongst each other and to have their photographs taken with the southernmost point anchor. The majority gathering here have arrived by driving, flying or one of the many cruise ships that frequent the island. While we were in line waiting to have our picture taken we actually witnessed a young man proposing marriage, here at the southernmost point. The groom's words were " I brought you here to this most southern point so you could not run any further south from me. Will you marry me?"  Everyone cheered and was very touching.
