Every September we like to take a road trip somewhere new. Hollands gymnastics coach told me about her trip to Mount Rushmore and I was sold on the idea. I left the planning and the driving up to Dallin and it was such an amazing trip.
Mount Rushmore suprisngly was only a 10 hour drive from our home. It’s located in South Dakota, and it is beautiful. The monument is stunning and the area is so clean and pristine. There is a half mile hike that is kid friendly around the front of the face of the mountain.
Our favorite was the 8pm closing ceremony where they lit up Mount Rushmore. The program was very touching and special. We learned all about the history of Mount Rushmore, and my favorite, we honored all those in the audience that had defended our country. And there were so many.
I’m always going to remember our visit and hope my children will too. But if not, well be back 🙂
