    Imjingak Resort is a unification and security tour complex comprised of Imjingak and North Korea Center, Unification Park, and several monuments and memorial sites. Pyeonghoa-Nuri Park, located next to the resort, also hosts many events, performances, and exhibitions to promote peace and reunification. The most popular attractions within the park are Hill of Music, on a large grassy slope with enough space for 25,000 people, and Pinwheel Park, featuring over 3,000 colorful pinwheels spinning freely in the wind.

    Additional attractions worth visiting in the Imjingak Resort area include Imjingak Peace Land, a small amusement park, and the National Memorial Hall of the Korean War Abductees, dedicated to educating the public on the abductions that happened during the Korean War.
