The first destination will be Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Explore this “Shrine of Democracy” depicting four of the most prominent presidents of the first 150 years of the United States. You will discover the Eighth Wonder of the World at Crazy Horse Memorial. It is the world’s largest mountain carving and is a memorial for all Native American tribes. Next, travel into Custer State Park which is one of the World’s Top Ten Wildlife Destinations. It is known for its bison herds, begging burros and other wildlife. Take in the scenery and marvel at the beauty of Iron Mountain Road.
