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 »

  • We got there early in the morning and wasn't crowded at all. Still comfortable temperature but was getting hot by the time we left. Took as many pictures as we wanted and other visitors are helpful talking pics for you. We enjoyed walking around the booths selling jewelry, t-shirts, etc... No pressure people, very nice and friendly. Currently building a nice restroom facility which will be great. We spent maybe an hour there. Nice road trip stop.
  • Great little place. I loved the people. So friendly. Some people were making stuff in their booths. Bring lots of money with you. I wanted so much stuff. I will be going back. One guy used molds from the volcano and another was making hand made vases from wood (hand carvings so pretty.) Lots of jewelry and bead working.
  • It's a long drive in the middle of nowhere. Your are charged a fee to be able to check it out. The area is surrounded by vendors. It is not kept up very well. The pit toilets are not well maintained. It was important to our kids to see this place. So, in that regard, I'm glad we went. However, I never need to go again.
  • Very unfriendly cashier. (Owned and operated by American Indians). Very different than in years past. Why all the booths for Indian wares so close to the actual spot. No veteran discount or any other for that matter!! Parking lot was a mess. Bathrooms (if you could call them that) were awful. You could smell them as you got out of the car. Not a pleasant experience!!
  • A nice stop along a long road trip to commemorate your visit to, well, the middle of nowhere, and yet it's one of the most known places in the Rocky Mountain/southwest area of the US. The four corners are identified on a 30-foot wide circle that has an "X" in the middle where the four states (Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico) meet and share their respective state-border corners. Don't forget to stop by the various artisans' shops along the outside perimeter of the Monument area; great place to pick up some native American art and handcrafted art pieces. There was an entrance fee when we visited ($10) that paid for the car and three adult occupants. Worth a trip if you're in that part of the country.
