The "90 Miles To Cuba" Sign

The "90 Miles to Cuba" sign, also known as the Southernmost Point Buoy, was constructed in 1983.  It stands twelve feet tall by seven feet wide. It was erected by the City of Key West and is made of concrete.

This buoy marks the southernmost point of the United States. The marker is painted red, black, and yellow. It was erected to commemorate the Cubans who died trying to get to America. Several hurricanes have damaged this marker, but it is still a popular tourist destination.

When you take a selfie at America's Southernmost Point in Key West, FL, you take a step back in time. Before tourists arrived, this was a place where fishermen sold conch shells on low tables. The shells were a popular souvenir.

Today, you can visit this landmark on foot from within the town or ride a shuttle from the 24 North Hotel. It's a quick two-minute walk from the shuttle stop. Whether you're planning to take a selfie or not, you'll still enjoy a great view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Southernmost Point is also a great place to learn more about Key West and its history. A plaque next to the buoy reminds visitors of the Cuban rafters who drowned while trying to get to America.
