Sightseeing Around Mount Rushmore


If you're planning a vacation to Mount Rushmore, sightseeing probably tops your list of "things to do." Here are some sights you won't want to miss:

For Everyone...

  • Of course, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. And learn the story behind the sculpture by visiting the Borglum Historical Center.
  • Crazy Horse Memorial in Custer will be the largest carved monument in the world once it's complete. This dedication to the Native American people that made the Black Hills their sacred lands is a must-see.
  • Harney Peak is the highest elevation east of the Rockies.

You can see all these sights, plus the famed Needles Highway and Iron Mountain Road, on a narrated Mount Rushmore Tour. Add a Chuck Wagon Supper and Show to your tour and enjoy a world-famous chuck wagon supper and the tastes of a genuine Western meal. After dinner, relax to the top-rated country music show and Western comedy. Or The Train and Mount Rushmore Lighting Ceremony Tour will take you for a ride on an 1880 Train through the scenic Black Hills for spectacular views that won't be forgotten. After the ride, visit Mount Rushmore at dusk for a patriotic show that bathes the images of our country's greatest leaders in illuminating light.

If You Like Cowboys, Indians, or Outlaws...

  • The City of Deadwood was home to Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. The entire town is a national historic site. And you can still play a hand of poker in a Wild West Saloon.
  • One of the most popular spots in Rapid City is The Circle B Ranch. Visiting the Circle B is like going back in time to the Old West. Take a trail ride through the forest in an antique covered wagon or ride a horse like the cowboys of yesteryear. You can pan for your own gold and play horseshoes or a round of miniature golf. Watch a shoot-out and then enjoy dinner in the 1,300-seat Chuck Wagon Barn where dinner is served on tin plates and tin cups. After dinner you can enjoy the music and comedy show of the Circle B Cowboys.
  • The Journey Museum in Rapid City displays four major collections of prehistoric and historic significance including the dinosaurs, the Lakota people, the pioneers, and present day. Visit their Museum of Geology, Archaeological Research Center, Sioux Indian Museum, Minnilusa Pioneer Museum, and The Duhamel Collection of Native American Artifacts.

For Couples...

  • Hot Springs is also a "must-see" destination. There you will find activities such as golf, fishing, hiking and biking. The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary is located here as is an 1880's jailhouse.

And don't forget Sturgis!

  • This normally conservative town offers fine dining and shopping until it's time for the Sturgis motorcycle rally. Every year, at the beginning of August, bikers from all over the world come to participate in this world-famous bike rally. If you are visiting the area in August, this is a scene you won't want to miss.
Mount Rushmore Grand Legends Tour
A must for any trip. I think going on this trip the first day really was the best thing for us. We were able to see where everything was so we could plan other things we wanted to do. They gave us ample time to see everything before going to the next sight. Drivers were very informative.

Mount Rushmore Tour
We would not have been able to see what we did on this tour had we drove ourselves around. The tour guide was wonderful and we all had a great time on our tour. We saw things that we weren't expecting. By far the most enjoyable and cost effective part of our vacation.
