Mount Rushmore. I don’t want to discourage anyone from going there- but I would rank it as one of the most overrated vacation destinations. Having said that I have been there five times in my life and it’s not like I live around the corner- I live 1400 miles away. If the Grand Canyon is a 5 star attraction- and it certainly is all that- Mt. Rushmore of a 3 star attraction. You could spend days at the Grand Canyon- Mount Rushmore-well you see it in the picture how long can you spend looking at the mountain with George, TJ- TR and Abe carved on it? A good hour or so. It is worth seeing- but the real hidden gem in South Dakota is a couple hours away- The Badlands. I love the Dakotas so if you ever made the trip to see Mount Rushmore- be sure to spend a day at least in the Badlands.
If they could add one more President to Mount Rushmore who would your pick be?
