South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore, a.k.a. “Four Face Mountain”

Mount Rushmore could very well be the most American national landmark there is.  The faces of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt carved into a mountain–pretty American.  Plus, it’s in South Dakota, smack dab in the middle of the United States.  That’s gotta raise its landmark ranking.  Here’s a travel tip: go sometime not close to the Fourth of July. That way you can get an extra dose of patriotism during the patriotic dry season. Or you can go all out and visit on Independence Day weekend, but you won’t be the only one thinking of that idea. Good luck with parking.
