Of course the main attraction at Mt. Rushmore, is the massive memorial for the four US Presidents sculpted from the granite peak. But there is much more to appreciate in this South Dakota region. You can see it all from the comfort of a modern tour bus, and learn facts from your knowledgeable guide as you spend the day letting someone else drive.
