Stonehenge May 26, 2008
This a place worth seeing because of it's mystery, but also because of the audio guide. The audio guide comes with the entrance fee and is very comprehensive and well narrated. In addition to describing the stones well, the guide recounts many folkloric stories regarding their origin. Merlin was involved in one version, and the devil in another.

You are not able to actually touch the stones but you are close enough to feel how impressive they are. While the path around the stones is pretty short, listening to the audio guide will require that you have at least an hour or two to spend here.

There is a small tourist shop and food vendor on site, but otherwise it is literally in a field. Getting there is easy though as it's just off a major highway and there were several tour buses we saw while we were there.

I only say this is free because we decided not to pay to go into the attraction. There is a fee (I'm not sure what it costs) to go inside the fence, but we got the same pictures as the people who actually paid to go in. It was pretty amazing to see, in person, something that you grow up seeing on TV and in books, etc. Hopefully everyone sees it once in their lifetime
