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 wanted to visit Mt. Rushmore since I was young. We were there in October and it wasn't too busy. Watched the video of how the sculptures were created and I just have to give credit to those men. How they were able to use dynamite and to such precise measurements, wow! Truly amazing. We walked around the trail also. Great views where you can see them closer. As a veteran, wished I'd been there in the summer. Bet that is powerful.
What a wonderful monument to the history of the United States of America!! The majestic panoramic view instills a sense of awe in my whole family. The dedication and expertise of the artists and workers is almost beyond comprehension. The site itself is clean and well maintained even though there always crowds of people here. Lots of parking and restrooms. I highly recommend a visit to this place at least once in your life.

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.
I can honestly say I've been there and cannot say I've seen it. The fact of the matter is that there was a dense fog the day and visibility was only about 200 ft! That said, the National Park System has done a phenomenal job in preserving and presenting the storied history of My Rushmore and those with the vision and fortitude to bring it to being. Everyone should make a trip to Rushmore a priority addition to their "Bucket List" of places to experience. We will visit again! And, hopefully, this time, take in its splendor. And while In the neighborhood, visit Devil's Tower, for a "Close Encounter" with a truly unique geological wonder!

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...
