You definitely have to go out of your way to get here. However, it's a neat place if you happen to drive in this direction. Very mysterious and odd. We were there when the weather was nice.

Since you can see tons of information about, and photos of, this odd little attraction online easily, physically going to visit it isn't strictly necessary. While seeing it in person doesn't impact any new knowledge to a visitor, it was an impressive edifice and we...More

Interesting and unique. We drove down on Memorial Weekend and it was easy to find. Interesting view of the 'guides' by the creator that still remains unknown and a mystery as to why they were built. Not everyone agrees to what the guidelines say but...More

Very limited walking. The site is pretty level and parking is right next to the Guidestones. It takes maybe 10 minutes to walk around the monuments and plaques. Very manageable.
