Every person with an interest in history needs to visit Mount Rushmore. Lest you think the presidential carving is simply men set in stone, there’s much more to this national memorial than what famously meets the eye. In addition to the legendary granite carvings of four American presidents, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial is an ode, treatise and patriotic lesson on America’s democracy and history.
Inside the memorial’s visitor center, numerous videos and interactive displays provide a thorough overview of American history that rivals a college course. Beneath the cliff, the half-mile Presidential Walking Trail offers sweeping views of the sculpture, which is ceremoniously illuminated on every summer night. After educating yourself at the memorial’s museum and strolling the network of trails, participate in a guided ranger talk at the adjoining sculptor studio.
