It's an out of the way destination but a curious site. Somebody put a lot of work into making that monument happen, and the secrecy of it all makes it an interesting story. That's really all I've got for you...

This is a quick stop along a trip through eastern Georgia. Very interesting place to visit. Lots of conspiracy theory abounds about the Guidestones but if you really stop to think about most of the "guides" it's all about treating each other and our world...More

My husband and I were on our way from Florida to Asheville and discovered we were within an hour of the Guidestones. We decided to take a little detour because I've been wanting to see them for sometime. It was worth the side trip.

It’s a interesting place to visit and it’s free but odd. Basically it outlines goals for population control and population limits in many different languages. The origin of it is shrouded in mystery.

You see them about fifty yards off the road; the symbols are mysterious as you do not really what they say or what they mean.

Free parking. Can be seen from road. Out, away from a big city. I haven't seen or heard of anything else like it.

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.

We stopped here since we were near for another reason. It's not really a "destination" sort of place, since you can see/experience it fully in less than a half hour. It is free, and it is very interesting. It's refreshing to see the "be good"...More

I don't see why you couldn't throw down a blanket and spread out a picnic. It's in the middle of a field, so as long as the ground isn't wet from all the resent rain, there is plenty of open area. I didn't notice any... 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.
