Discover the Black Hills and Badlands
Inspiration juts from a wall of sheer granite, hanging above pine and spruce trees that blanket these rugged hills like a fur cloak. No matter how many times you see it, Mount Rushmore, a uniquely American artwork set amid a sweeping landscape, evokes emotion. The memorial, 23 miles southwest of Rapid City, ranks as one of America's must-see destinations. But don't just stop at the 60-foot-tall faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. An entire vacation's worth of sights -- natural and made -- await in the Black Hills and nearby Badlands.
