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.

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

Don't listen to these people. It's not "shady" and there are plenty of gas stations. It's also not "mountains." A few hills but not really mountains. There's a Days Inn in Elberton. But I recommend the Samuel Elbert... More
