Mile Marker 0

Just down the road from the Green Parrot Bar on Whitehead Street marks the official end of U.S. 1 and is one of the most popular landmarks to get a photo taken in Key West. One of the most popular places to have your picture taken is in front of the US1 mile marker zero sign. Every day, hundreds, if not thousands of visitors, smile for the camera and commemorate visiting the southernmost point of the United States. Stretching from upper Maine to Key West, US 1, known locally as the Overseas Highway, is a 2,369 interstate that connects most major cities in the eastern U.S. A photograph here is proof that you have made it to the end of the road, escaped normal life on the mainland, and know the difference between too much work and too much play.
