“Pose with your favorite President”

We had a map of the downtown showing the location of all the presidential statues. After parking, we were able to walk to 3 different intersections to get a picture with our 4 favorites in just a short time. It is a nice tribute to the presidents. We found this entire area: Rapid City, Keystone and Custer to be very patriotic in everything they do.
The president statues are done to scale, so it was interesting to see the relative height (or surprising lack thereof) of some of the presidents. We enjoyed guessing which president it was and keeping track of who got the most correct. Most were easy, but some weren't and we all had a different guess.

Great walk around downtown. The volunteers at the presidential storefront are awesome. I think we walked every block to finish the scavenger hunt and the girls loved it.

Inspired by Borglum's seated statue of Lincoln, Rapid City hosts a bronze statue of every US president. I recommend starting your visit at the information center where complimentary guidebooks with maps are available showing every downtown presidential statue location.

We didn't visit all of them, but enjoyed snapping pics of the ones we did visit.

The guidebook was a significant help and includes artists' bios and concepts.

We had 2 teenagers and 1 pre-teen in our group. It was fun to walk around and hear what they, and the adults knew about each president. Definitely glad we took the time to do this

Got to the City of President's Information office - the owner is full of information and pleasant to talk to. They have some miniature statues on display in there.

Very interesting walk, plenty on Main Street itself to keep the kids interested, if your downtown and looking for something to do, try it out.
