This is what you come to the Black Hills to see and it is spectacular. We took our 3 kids aged 9-13 and it was beautiful. Definitely do the walk around the Rushmore Memorial as you get to see different views of this spectacular monument.

There are so many great photo ops there. Little disappointed in paying $11 to park , The parking structure was built with private money and maintained privately. It is the best way to get close enough to get great photos. It is definitely a must do attraction in every person's lifetime.

I've visited Mount Rushmore twice, and enjoyed my visit both times. It's great to view Rushmore and reflect on the history of how it happened. There is plenty of history to read about in the museum & gift shop, as well as numerous souvenirs (and some good fudge). I also took the Presidential trail which is a nice, roughly half... More

Don't know what to say about this. It speaks for itself, beautiful scenery, informative displays, a true delight.

An icon of America and something everyone should see at least once in his or her life. The faces on the mountain side are the definition of "awesome." Be sure to tour the grounds and check out the tools that were used to carve the faces as well as the scale model of what it was supposed to look like... More

Couldn't help staring at the sculptures, it is fascinating. Be sure to see the video to learn how the sculptures were created.

Mount Rushmore was so much more than what I had expected. In fact, our entire trip to South Dakota was more than expected -- it was fabulous. Stayed at a cabin in Hill City and did the Iron Mountain and Needles Highway as well as Custer State Park and Rushmore all in the same day. By the time we got... More

I did an organised trip to Mt Rushmore as I was travelling solo and did not have a car. I thought it was brilliant. You see pictures and films with it in but until you're there I don't think you can appreciate the work. I was fortunate enough to meet one of the only remaining workers whilst at the memorial...

It would of been a great stop if we hadn't gotten stopped on the side of the mountain ( we were riding motorcycle) because there was too many visitors and traffic didn't keep moving. By the time we did get to the Memorial and parked we were so frustrated that we took a couple of pictures and left not even... More
