This is my first trip to Rushmore and it didn't disappoint. It is beautiful in person. I recommend everyone go and see it. It's $10 to park.

This is a wonderful informative place to take a family or anyone. You learn history, see a movie on this undertaking, visit an interesting museum, and later on, dusk, you can see the formation under lights. Its breathtaking!
