It's a neat place to take your kids. Nothing exciting to do however it is a neat piece of the local history.

A very interesting quick stop that requires going somewhat out of your way if travelling through Georgia. Some may find to fascinating, some not so much but we appreciate unusual (and barely explainable) experiences so we loved it. The visit is quick as you take...More

Awesome monument with sayings to actually sit back and think about. A busy place considering it is in the middle of a field.

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.

We have an iPhone and we used the map app on the phone and just entered Ga Guide Stones it will get you there. From Snellville Ga it took apx. 2 hours. It's a pretty drive a lot of country side to look at.
