We had a lovely visit-went first thing in the morning and came back at night. We were glad we did it that way because you don't get a full appreciation of the sculptures if you only go at night.

All my life I have wanted to visit Mt. Rushmore. My grandparents honeymooned in the Black Hills when the construction on the monument had just started. My parents had been with my younger sibling, but I had not. Finally, this year I took 6 of my kids and we were not disappointed. Not only is the monument incredible, but the... More

This is well worth the visit. This attraction was part of a family road trip. We are from TN. Mount Rushmore was my kids favorite attraction of the entire trip. It was sunny on the day we visited. Clear skies made it amazing to see the carving from all angles. We walked the trail around the monument. Our youngest, age... More

Very cool to see at dusk and watch the lowering of flag. Not much to do here, but it is a must see if you are in the area and have not experienced it.

This is a truly brilliant sight. Its a lot bigger than you think and its worth the drive. There are a few shops near here and the whole area is really well set out. There is a small museum as well which is very good and worth the look around.

One of the icons in USA that perhaps you need to tick off your bucket list. Park, walk to area, take photos, leave. There is nothing else to see. However, we did come across two 'resident' sheep. Think it was mother and kid, cute. Take a photograph before you enter the park. You may be lucky to get the American... More

Everyone needs to see this monument. It really is awe-inspiring. The museum was also very interesting and well presented.

Me and my husband loved seeing this. Wasn't crowded and very short walk from car to Mt Rushmore. Will be back in the summer with the family. Can't wait see you next year.
