There are a handful of things I think all folks should visit at least once in their life. Statue of Liberty (still on the list), Pearl Harbor and Mt. Rushmore.

It's just beautiful. I lived there as a kid and we'd inevitably drive up there when folks visited, and it was okay way back then. In the intervening 15 years or so, they're really updated the entire site and it's gorgeous.

It's really a nice and scenic walk all the way the avenue of the flags and presidents. All nicely done! We're planning a visit again several summers from now. It's nice with kids to spot your own state flag on the way up. It does get hot in the summer time, so wear shorts and a hat - it's sunny as hell most days and it shines off the granite like crazy.

All in all, a fantastic experience.

Thank Jason D

I was lucky to be able to work with the National Park Service at Mt Rushmore National Memorial. The NPS employees at the Memorial are simply awesome, service-centered, mission-driven employees. The Memorial itself is breath-taking; a magnificent feat of engineering and sculpture. Seeing the Memorial in the early morning, afternoon and early evening was a treat. The light changes and highlights different features. The sculpture itself is wonderful but the NPS staff are just as wonderful. Go visit this national treasure.

It is absolutely amazing to see this American icon in person. The craftsmanship to pull this off is astounding. Do yourself a favor and visit this place

Would love to actually give this an honest to goodness rating, but the day we went in Sept '17 was the first "white out" day of the year. It was foggy and wet and drizzly and you couldn't see anything. So, when we go back next year, I will give it an appropriate review.
