US 1 Mile Marker 0 reviews
Well, it's a highway sign. It met every expectation and was easy to find. I wish I had started looking closer to mm 0. I would have gotten there sooner. more »
We were told by the locals that that particular sign gets stolen almost as soon as it is replaced. The first day we went by we saw it but 2 days later it was gone. more »
The mile marker zero indicates the beginning of US North Highway#1. It stretches all the way from Key West the in the Continental United States to the Fort Kent, Maine, at the Canada–US border. With that said, I would appreciate it if it ended right at the sign. Instead it ends on a crossroad and the moment you pass the red light, it becomes Whitehead street. I think a landmark ( like Southernmost city buoy) would attract more people to this spot and possibly make it photo-worthy. Apart from that, it is just a regular street sign and one can easily miss it if Google did not mark this as photo spot. :)
It is a landmark, one of those places on the secondary bucket list. Has some history still not terribly overrun by tourists although sometimes a long line forms to get a good picture, which you can't get anyway because there are those type of tourist that doesn't matter what you're trying to do they always invade your space. Worthwhile to go. get there early because later in the day especially if sunset it's a madhouse. There's is the only authorized Street vendor nearby his name is Eddie buy something from him he's a legend.
