Rapid City, South Dakota is the doorway to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, an awe-inspiring, must-see experience for your vacation. Visited by nearly three million people each year, this bucket list attraction is a meaningful part of vacationing in Rapid City. Whether seeing it for the first time or making a return pilgrimage, Mount Rushmore lives up to its reputation as an iconic American experience.

The faces of four American presidents – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln – are carved from a granite mountainside high above the treetops of the Black Hills.
