This monument is simply amazing. You can see it from several different directions before you even get to it. When you walk up to this amazing place you can’t even imagine how proud you feel to be an American. The sense of pride is overwhelming and welcoming. You first walk through an area that has all of the state’s flags and when they became a state and then finally come up to an amazing view of the monument. There is a small hike that you can do to get a little closer. If you have a good heart and have the ability to climb stairs I would say this is a must! There is also a little area downstairs that has a video that plays telling you the history of Mount Rushmore and a lot of information in different areas to go through.
