This is really just a Y in the road, but it does have a marker and since it claims to be the World's Smallest City Block it is fun to stop and take a picture. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it, but if you want to do something inexpensive you could take a tour of Dothan's downtown... More

Guinness Book of Records has placed this as the smallest block in the world. Since our hotel was near by we took the time to locate it since we were in no hurry and was looking around Dothan. It's fun to see how small it is and gave us a good chuckle! It's no big deal so if you are... More

I went here mostly as a joke and because my parents were in town and were curious about it. I never realize I had drove by it so many times after paying my utilities bill. We took a couple pictures but it honestly looks like a little forgotten piece of grass with a tombstone which is actually a landmark telling... More

Do yourself a favor. Step out your back door or go to the nearest city park. Do you see a small patch of dirt? Is there some refuse or an empty beer bottle laying nearby? If so, then you have officially experienced everything you will experience at East Troy St. in Dothan. Additionally, Dothan is a filthy, dilapidated town. Lock... More

Okay, it's true - it isn't much of an attraction. But then again, it doesn't take much time either. It is exactly as advertised - kinda fun and definitely unique. There's parking nearby, so it doesn't take much time to check it out. If you're into geocaching (as we are), there's an extra reason to visit. It's fun to say... More

Just so you can say you've been to the smallest city block in the world -- according to the Guinness Book of Records.

You're not missing anything here. It's cool that Dothan has something original like this but it definitely isn't an "attraction".

i find it funny that so many people on here actually review this like it is an actual "attraction". Come on people its more a joke than a serious attempt at having the worlds smallest city block! Its just people having fun and joining anyone else to join in. Dont take it so serious. If you are downtown and have... More

We had a cute time taking pictures here and having the kids pretend they were giants. I was a little concerned about what seemed like stepping into traffic in order to take a picture. Our daughter is on a world's record kick so we stopped at as many attractions during our cross-county tour. So this was definitely worth stopping for... More

The small triangular piece of land in downtown Dothan touted as the “smallest city block in the world” is barely worth mentioning as an attraction. Only if one is already downtown or in desperate need for some sort of touristy “proof” of being in Dothan would the trip be worthwhile. Factually, the “smallest block in the world” claim is tenuous... More
