USA’s Southernmost County

The Florida Keys encompasses two of this states most scenic & historic counties; Miami-Dade and Monroe.

Welcome to Monroe county, the southernmost county in the entire United States! I’ve included a photo of Monroe County’s symbolic logo below that includes: palm tree, conch shell, anchor and of course an ocenview. As of the 2010 census, the population was 73,090. Its county seat is Key West. Founded in 1823, Monroe County includes all of the islands of the Florida Keys.

You can find the ‘Entering Monroe County’ sign at Mile Marker 112.8 on US-1’s southbound lane on what is called the 18-Mile Stretch. Be very careful, the sign is on a small bridge spanning a canal, therefore please park before or after the bridge for safety reasons.
