Thread: Mount Rushmore

  1. Default Mount Rushmore

    Road trip from Avon, CO to Mount Rushmore. On first look, not much exciting except the destination. Been to Denver & Cheyenne many times. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I'm a bit surprised you couldn't find "much exciting" on that drive when you'll be passing by Rocky Mountain National Park; Chimney Rock, Courthouse and Jail Rocks, and other Oregon Trail sites; Agate National Fossil Beds; and Pine Ridge National Recreation area. Then in the Rapid City area, besides Mount Rushmore there's Wind and Jewel Caves, Badlands National Park, the Crazy Horse Monument, and Devils Tower.

    Thank you AZBuck. Obviously I did not do much research.

    I'm planning on visiting Mt. Rushmore myself - have you researched where is a good place to stay? If you know of any, please share :)

    Other than that, I would recommend visiting the Badlands!

    In the summer season, Rushmore is not a particularly budget-friendly area. There are several hotels and B&B's in Keystone, a few in Custer, and a wider selection in Rapid City.

    We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Custer when we visited in summer 2010. It was a good hotel. We enjoyed the fireplace at the back of the hotel at nights. It is central to the Rushmore area including Wind and Jewel Caves and the Crazy Horse monument. It was reasonably priced given it was the tourist season. I recommend booking early as hotels fill up.
