We went way in the morning. No cameras allowed, but they do have sale on necklace fir taking the tour. Interesting information on how Black Hills tri color jewelry is made and what makes authentic Black Hills Gold jewelry. Teen girls loved it!

went to the Black Hills Gold Factory. Very interesting. Saw how they make the many different things. The gold doesn't have to come from the Black Hills, It jewelry has to be made in the black hills to be called Black Hill .Saw the intricate work that goes into each piece. If you have time in the Black Hills this... More

This is 'a must see' attraction; the story and history is interesting & informative. The mountainous views are great. I highly recommend visiting the Presidential Monument. The Creativity-Energy -Effort -Detail expended on its completion is encouraging to anyone planning a project. Plan and make the visit.

This was the main reason we drove to South Dakota, to see Mt. Rushmore. It was more spectacular than I expected. We watched the short film which was very informative. It is a must see for everyone.

This is something that everyone should see. Just one of the coolest things I've ever seen. And the history behind it and how they made this amazing piece of history so long ago and so little equipment/technology. Read the history of it before you go it will make you appreciate it that much more. Pure AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bathrooms and gift shops... More

Amazing to see. Before u go decide whether you want to see the light show at night or not then you don't have to go twice. We went during the day which was nice but didn't feel like coming back. Make sure you walk the Presidents trail which starts right when you get to the end of the main walkway... More

Being an American, I felt like it was my patriotic duty to visit Mt. Rushmore. I loved the backdrop of the monument in the movie, North By Northwest by Alfred Hitchcock. It was such a beautiful site. Not bad for $11 a carload. Parking was nearby and lots of handicapped parking for those in need. I did think it was... More

This was an incredible sight, especially for someone who was not born in the United States. I only wish that I could get a little closer. Every tour of America should include this site.

I am not sure why but this did not move me nearly as much as the photos. I love the history of the site and what the four men mean for our country. However, for me this is much better seen in pictures.
