I've always wanted to see Mount Rushmore so my husband and I are planning a road trip from Salt Lake City with our two year old and seven year old daughters. Our thought is to go over the July 4th holiday since my husband has two days of paid vacation. We'd probably leave on Tuesday the 3rd and be home by Sunday the 8th. Any suggestions on a fun and unique travel route? I've thought about traveling up to Yellowstone, but after that, I don't know the area to the East. Also, does anyone know of any 4th of July celebrations (fireworks, parade, etc.) in any town along the way? We're looking into camping also instead of motels. Any suggestions as to where to stay?
