EVER WANT TO BE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE? TRYING BEING IN FOUR PLACES AT ONCE. FOUR CORNERS MONUMENT IS THE ONLY PLACE IN THE UNITED STATES WHERE FOUR STATES INTERSECT: ARIZONA, NEW MEXICO, UTAH, AND COLORADO. YOU CAN STAND ON THAT SPOT AND TRULY BE IN FOUR STATES AT ONE TIME.
Years of squabbling had shifted the state borders around, but in 1912 they were solidified with a cement pad that signified the final spot, and the end of the territorial disputes. Today, there’s a dignified brass and granite designation marking the spot.
The site is located within the Colorado Plateau, which is home to many parks and preserves renowned for their natural beauty including Monument Valley and Canyon de Chelly National Monument.
The Four Corners Monument Visitor Center is open year-round. There you’ll find demonstrations of Navajo culture as well as Navajo vendors selling handmade jewelry, crafts, and traditional Navajo foods.
The area also offers many picnic tables, making it a perfect stop for a picnic during your Arizona road trip.
And don’t forget to get your picture taken while standing in four places at once before you leave!
You won’t find hotels or B&B’s right next to Four Corners, but you will find plenty in nearby towns such as Kayenta, Tuba City, Winslow and Flagstaff. Camping is the way to stay if you want to be close to the monument. There are several campgrounds around Four Corners.
Open daily, year-round, closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
