Mount Rushmore National Memorial
Enjoy the view at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, the movie explaining why these presidents are included and the visitors center that details the process of creating the monument. Memorabilia includes letters from presidents, newspaper clippings, old photographs and descriptions of the conditions workers endured. A hands-on display allows you to "blast" rock off the mountain during the building stages (605/574-2523; nps.gov/moru).
