Mount Rushmore National Memorial
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is visited by nearly three million people each year that come to marvel at the majestic beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota and learn about the birth, growth, development and preservation of the country. From the history of the first inhabitants to the diversity of America today, Mount Rushmore brings visitors face to face with the rich heritage we all share.

I have been waiting to come here most of my life and it was worth the wait! I was amazed to see this historic landmark of America. The facility was in mint condition, entrance fee costs $10.00 but last until the end of the annual year if you wanted to come back. Parking attendant was helpful and friendly. Visitor Center offers many gifts and also a free audio tour to guide you around the park. If in this area again I will most definitely be stopping by Mt. Rushmore.

This is a wonderful place to visit with your family and friends. I love to take my dogs on walks here in the morning to see the sunrise or the sun sets at night obviously. It is such a beautiful to visit in the fall when the leaves are turning colors period. We need more Park for our families and loved ones to visit and have a good time together. So please write your Congressman or your senators and let them know that we need less golf courses for the rich and more free and open Park...
Iconic, patriotic, and pretty cool. There’s not much else to say about this place. What you see is what you get— it looks exactly like it does in pictures. The drive from Rapid City is an easy one, there’s plenty of parking, and a cute gift shop with both some of the most horrifyingly gaudy (tie-dye Rushmore boxers) and impressively classy (hand-carved wooden buffalo) gifts I’ve seen. If you’re in the area, it’s worth a trip. If not, you can 100% experience it through pictures.
It’s famous for a reason. I’d seen pictures, but nothing can quite capture the sense of awe and wonder you feel looking up at the four regal faces of our past presidents carved into the cliff side. There is a parking garage with easy access to the monument, and the lead up to the main attraction is broad for many travelers and also pays homage to all the states, and territories in America, which is a nice touch. The main gallery is very educational, and lets viewers get a sense for just how massive an undertaking this really was. I learned a lot about the sculptor, and generally just have a much better appreciation for the monument itself and for the people who gave so much to make it a reality. Definitely worth going and seeing in person.
I loved when I visited here a few years ago, it was absolutely the most magnificent thing that I have ever seen! I have seen pictures, but you can't see and comprehend from just a picture. When you see it with your own eyes, you really can capture the magnificent size and just the awe inspiring, jaw dropping sight that this wonderful monument is! I definitely recommend coming here, and it only costs $10.00!
