We took our child to Mt. Rushmore during summer 2014 and it was truly worth it to see this amazing masterpiece. It was the perfect second grade education. Just be prepared with comfortable shoes for the climb up and down along the paths. One thing to note is that while the attraction is free, parking is not. So even if... More

My family have been to the Mt Rushmore/Rapid City area three times and have yet to be bored. Mt Rushmore National Park is a sight to behold, though the actual presidents monument is somewhat smaller in person than one would think, but still quite an impressive sight. Our visit to Crazy Horse was an unexpected surprise just to see what... More

Not like the things you see on shopping channels. Just a big jewelry store. Make sure you call ahead to see if they are open. Went on weekend afternoon at 2pm and despite website saying they were open for tours....they weren't...

History kind of breaks my fascination with this tour. Not sure I would return. Did have outstanding artists.

just by looking at the gigantic sculptures, one can not believe that with blasting the boulders up the hills could create such perfect images of four famous individuals who contributed a lot to US history!

All Americans should visit this fantastic place. Study the true history and you will be proud. This was one of our best trips ever. Make sure you drive to all the attractions in the big area. Custer state park etc.

My Husband and I visited during their "Off Season" which starts in September, I'm assuming. We visited the Mountain on a Thursday. Light traffic not too many tour buses. Didn't take long to get through the entrance which was $11 per car and the ticket is good all year. Very easy to find parking. View was amazing and the Park... More

Traveled to South Dakota just to visit Mt. Rushmore and got not only the vacation I expected but much more. First, Mt. Rushmore lived up to all its glory. The weather was perfect on the days we visited the monument (one visit during the day and another visit during the lighting ceremony at night). We were able to take an... More
