South Dakota: Stunning Scenery

South Dakota is known for its amazing mountains. The top tourist attraction here is the famed Mount Rushmore, where the faces of four American presidents are carved into the mountains. The faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt stare out from the mountain top and truly are an impressive sight. Make sure to visit the sculptor's studio and the visitor's center to get some background on how the faces were carved and the history of the area. If time permits, drive through the entire Custer's park. You may encounter tame and friendly local wildlife who will approach your car asking for food! "
