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'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.
