Four Corners Monument, Teec Nos Pos

2.4
#222 of 1,329 in Things to do in Arizona
The only place in the United States where four states intersect as one point, Four Corners Monument was originally marked in 1912 with a simple cement pad. The monument has since been renovated and now features a granite and brass pad that is decorated with flags from each state. Stand and take a photo at the crossroad. Or visit the demonstration center with Navajo artisans and pick up handmade jewelry and crafts. You'll have the opportunity to sample traditional Navajo food at nearby vendors. Take water with you--there is no running water or electricity at this site.

  • It is now $5 per person to get in, cash only. Nearest ATM is 18mi away. Just be aware. Many cars had to turn back after an hour of driving in the desert. The booths are better than they used to be and shopping around the monument is easy. Mostly variations on the same jewelry, but you will occasionally find unique items. Very little shade, so if you go on a hot day, dress appropriately and bring water. The line for pictures is usually very long.
  • Not as bad as expected. You basically stand in a long line and wait your turn to stand on the four corners. Everyone seemed to be in a very good mood and were really patient giving plenty of time to do a few poses. If you needed your photo taken, almost everyone was willing, just be sure to offer to take theirs as well. Just be courteous and not try to spend forever there. It is basically a cement pad on the ground, but whatever, if you're out this way it is worth a stop. I don't think I would make a trip for it though.
  • It's not that bad. But don't re-rout your vacation to get to this place. We planned to go knowing full well that it was basically a tourist trap. There isn't much here except native-American shops on all four sides of the monument. Nothing you can't get anywhere else. But if you want to see it, go for it. Bring cash, they don't take cards. Also keep in mind that this is not a national monument, but a private operation.
  • It was cool to say I've been, but it's $5 a person and they have a sign up saying "limit of 3 photos only" and I personally think that's just silly. If you're paying to get in you should be able to take as many pictures as you want, even if that means taking 1 picture at a time and getting back in line to take more. It's basically a giant square and there are booths surrounding it so you can walk around and purchase souvenir's. People running the booths were really nice. They do have two buildings of outhouses. Definitely fun to say you've been in 4 different states at one time.
  • Very fun!! My kids loved the experience. It's hot, but didn't take too long. Got some great pictures and authentic native American souvenirs. 3 photo limit. And they do take debit cards also.
