There isn't much to see but this area of downtown does have a few things to draw you in. If you're a Geocacher, well, you'll know what to do. If not, look it up. The block itself... read more

Worlds smallest city block just happens to also be the worlds best city block! Great for sunbathing in a vertical position due to the concrete surroundings reflecting the heat of the sun back at you! Will improve your fitness if you spend much time there due to the lack of bench! Must see! Guaranteed no crowds but keep on the... More

It is what it is. Worlds smallest city block. Which is corner intersection w/monument. Nothing more to see or say

Just a granite marker on a small patch of land that sits between the roads. If you are already at the Civic center in downtown Dothan then by all means go by and get a picture. Otherwise just skip it.

we stopped by so I could take a picture. my kids thought I was crazy--which was the point. Laugh a little--lighten up--take a pic of the 'worlds smallest city block' and go on with life.

We specifically went out of our way for this and all it consists of is a small monument in the middle of connecting streets.

I really find it hard to believe this is considered an attraction. Don't go out of your way to see this.

The best things come in small packages. Visit the smallest block with your people and stake your memory today. Life is short, go to Dothan.

My only complaint is that I can't give this national treasure 6 stars! It's truly the Crown Jewel of the Wiregrass. If you haven't been to this attraction, you haven't lived.

This is such an overrated attraction....This "city block" is a small triangle of land which connects two one way streets.....no big deal! It may be good just to stand in the middle of it and make a "selfie" declaring that you a e standing in the middle of the worlds smallest city block....but, I think you could spend your time...
