Always has been a place to visit in my bucket list. And I did it. The statues are great and as magnificent to view even during the night. They have nice museums and theater. The theaters play the history of the place. They have a foot trail that pass from just in front of the statues. Nice place to be in. They have good ice cream shop and other places to eat as well. Moreover I love the highway that leads to The Mount Rushmore--- meandering.. wow!! Would love to go for a helicopter tour very soon!!

I’ve been a firm believer in the National Park Service and visiting the parks and monuments for almost 10 years. Mount Rushmore is definitely a place to add to visit! While the weather in the Black Hills can be unpredictable as I came to experience trying to see Mount Rushmore over three days, getting see it is well worth it! Definitely take some time to walk around and take in the views of the mountain from different sides as well as learn about the cultural heritage of this area with the native American tribes and bands. There’s parking areas only a short walk from the memorial. There’s also a gift shop as well as concessions if you want ice cream or some coffee even. And definitely make a point to drive down the road and see the Crazy Horse Memorial!

Have you ever been here? There are so many trails by it. And if you go at night they shine lights on it. You also can get a badge and become a junior ranger. Your kids will love it there and will thank you so many times. So if you haven't been there you need to go. And if you have please give this a big thumbs up. I hope this was helpful and will convince you to go there if you haven't yet.

Wanted to see this since childhood; finally got the chance. Spring could be very bad for clear view as presence of fog is certain and you could see nothing. Had to wait two days before we got the chance to look at the magnificent national monument. Park in lot 3 from which it’s easy to walk to the monument. Food court; Restrooms and ice cream at the site. Paid $10 for parking which is valid for one whole year. You get to see small documentary on how it’s made etc on screen.

Parking was only $10 and the pass stays good all year! Clean facility in it's entirety. The gift shops had interesting and unique merchandise. The coffee shop had ice cream from Thomas Jefferson's own recipe! The monument is absolutely breathtaking! Expect to feel astonished. The museum is an absolute must. So informative and fun. My family is already planning our return visit.
