Four Corners Monument, Teec Nos Pos

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.

  • As many reviews write, there’s not much here. Looks like they have built it up and have vendors around selling native items however it was extremely windy and cold when we stopped early April so only ...  more »
  • This is an interesting place to visit. Honestly there isn’t much there, but is worth the stop. The souvenirs/arts are really cool and the vendors were very nice to talk with. It may not be worth it if...  more »
  • So cool to sit and be in 4 states at once. I enjoyed the booths of the native Indians that were there too. Original works of art!  more »

  • It's a nice spot to visit only if you are passing through the area; definitely not a destination. This is more of a tourist trap and bragging rights sort of thing as there are no nice views available from this specific location. The Four Corners marker is surrounded by small arts and crafts stands, thus if you're interested in that this is definitely a good spot to shop some variety. As I mentioned before, if you're on a road trip and are passing through and have the time, consider visiting, else skip it and make better use of your time by visiting nearby scenic or cultural locations such as Mesa Verde National Park or Ship Rock.
  • For the nerd in all of us, who doesn't like being in 4 states at one time? We had fun and checked that spot off of the bucket list. 😀 The Navajo woman whom we purchased a Christmas tree ornament from was the friendliest and shared great stories of how their families learn the trade and pass on to current generations. Very fascinating.
  • Experiencing the four corners monument was really amazing. The monument itself was really cool and it was fun browsing the Navajo vendor trading posts. The vendors were very friendly but I felt a bit ripped off as some of the souvenirs I bought were half the price at other booths. The drive there along hwy 160 was awe inspiring!!!
  • Cool place to visit and see the 4 corners. My kids loved walking around all the vendor booths. Lots of cool native American jewelery and dream catchers. Not much else to do though. I think we spent 20 minutes there total. The picnic tables were out in the open with no shade or protection from the wind.
  • Great scenic drive out to the monument from any way. A must-do, just to say you have been! Bring cash. Lots of vendors for souvenirs and snacks on a warm day, but no guarantees if it's cold. Plan out your favorite ideas and poses if you plan to get the perfect photo! Either way, it's an experience with or without. Check it out!
