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.

  • I think if you are on the road going by, then it's worth the stop. We drove an hour out of our way to go here, for my son who had it in his mind he wanted to see it. I'm left feeling that it's an over...  more »
  • This is definitely a drive by stop if you are ever in the area. It's 5dlls per person and you can take 3 photographs at the 4 corners plaque. There are numerous vendors for food and souvenirs.  more »
  • This is the only thing to do for a very long drive, but it's still one of those things kids may enjoy. You stand in line to take a picture. It's quite awkward, but it works out well. There are many ve...  more »

  • It was awesome to best at four places at one time. The drive from Grand Canyon to the middle of no where with very little information about the location was brutal. My family and I drove about 5 hours from the Grand Canyon area to there. The pictures looked amazing online. We get there and yea, we got excited about the circle indicating the 4 states. That took about 1 minute. There were a handful of people selling souvenirs...that was it. Wish it had like a visitor center or at least informational signs with facts to make the location more appealing
  • Wonderful place. Flea market at the location that locals set up to sell handmade native American crafts. Walking trail with awesome picture opportunities. Grills for cook outs on property. Only word of caution is watch out for glass around grills. Good way to spend couple of hours. Only 4 corners in the U.S.!
  • This is an interesting place to visit from the point of view that you can be physically in four States at one time. While the Supreme Court established that this specific monument as the official marker a point of law. Technically, it means all the pictures taken here are legally correct in their representation of those folks being in four States at one time. However, due to newer surveying technology the Four Corners junction is actually 1800+ feet to the East of this site.... Oh well. Another oddity is that you can only enter Four Corners from one State by road. Enjoy your pictures and your jewelry purchases from the numerable vendors at the site and move on. There are still many adventures to enjoy in the Southwest.
  • It is a very unique place in America, sort of like the geographical center, not a lot to see around the area since it is in the middle of nowhere, cant say we would have gone just to see it but definately an interesting place to swoop in if you drive by. There is a tremendous lack of signage so you could potentially drive right by without even realizing it. We went in March on our way to the Grand Canyon, no lines not hot like the summer time, I read stories about how miserable it is during the summer....
  • Interesting place to visit. NOT part of the National Park system. Administered by Navajo Nation. Limited services. Reasonable entrance fees. Basically a unique photo op.
