Southern Most Point!

Southern Most Historic Inn
Southern Most Historic Inn

Mile Marker, Route 1
To think that I took these photos at the southern most point in the United States! Honestly when I am in Key West, I feel as though I'm in another country. Key West has the flavor of the Caribbean with all the comforts of home, for sure. The day was cloudy and a bit windy but perfect for photographing none the less! 
A few facts: 
The southern terminus of U.S. Route 1. The highway officially ends/begins at the intersection of Whitehead Street and Fleming Street in Key West. It is 2,390 miles from its northern terminus in Fort Kent, Maine.~wikimapia~ 

Southern Most House Historic Inn, is a historic inn and museum in the city of Key West, Florida in Monroe County, United States. Five U.S. Presidents have stayed there.  It is located in the upper Duval district. It was built in 1896 for a cost of $250,000 USD as a private residence for Judge Vining Harris. It was converted years later into a Cuban nightclub called Café Cayo Hueso in 1939. It was converted back into a residence in 1954 and remained so until 1996, when it underwent a $3 million USD renovation and converted into a 18-room hotel.~wikipedia~

Pin It!

I have never been to the southern most point of the US...nor to the northern, eastern or western...just smack in the middle. Love your images of this place, and the clouds just added to the beauty.

I would love to visit Key West. My sister and her husband, along with my parents, went a few years ago and always talk about how much they enjoyed it there. Hope you have a good weekend!

Beautiful pics. What struck me most was they Hwy. 1 "END" sign. Mile 0. I've never seen that. Glad you're having such a wonderful time!

Key West looks like a photographer's paradise. I hear that the sunsets in the keys are beyond gorgeous. Hope you get one of those.
