I kid you not, this is BY FAR the largest sign in the Keys! Yes, hurricane Irma did do some damage to it, but it’s still there!
As you can see by the photo, this Florida Keys landmark dwarfs everything in its vicinity. I’ve had a photo of this iconic sign for years but refused to write the blog till having a comparison in the photo to judge its height. In curing my photo problem, I coerced this marathon runner passing by to pose for me! Believe it or not, it only cost me several baby carrots & ranch dip as I bribed her for the side-by-side comparison! (True) The willing volunteer appears tiny as she barely rises above the bushes, I too left the street lamp to the right for judging.
I don’t have the exact height of the sign but I’ll give it my best trigonometry guess… wait a minute, didn’t I flunk TRIG in school, oh well, I’ll say it’s 31 feet tall by 39 feet long! Go ahead, I dare you to break out your own tape measure as you pass by if you doubt my measurements!
You can find this gigantic Islander Resort roadside sign at Mile Marker 82.0 oceanside on US-1. It’s exactly across the street from the equally large mermaid known as Lorelei.
