The Georgia Guidestones have an interesting history behind them, and they are very interesting to visit once and to read... but it's in the middle of a field in the middle of nowhere, with no other attraction around it. For those with a deeper historical...More

This is a long drive to the middle of a field with nothing else there except the stones. I have now seen them but I will not go back for another visit. Strangely interesting!!

Neat to see and cool for the kids to run around for 15minutes. I would not make a special trip to here, but if passing by it, it is worth a short stop. Just keep your expectations in check.

I had seen a TV program about the guide stones and figured since they were close I would stop by a see them. The location is a bit underwhelming, but it was picked for a reason. The guide stones are placed in the middle of...More

Words of wisdom literally in the middle of nowhere but on a weekday 5 cars there needs a park around it. But still loved it !
