HOW To Visit Mount Rushmore

One of America’s famous landmarks and most patriotic monuments, the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

Located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.

Rapid City Regional Airport is the closest airport. The memorial is about a 45-minute drive from there.

The Mount Rushmore grounds are open every day. The park site is typically open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Mount Rushmore is free to visit year-round. However, the park site charges a parking fee of $10 per vehicle.

Active duty military members park for free.

A half-hour to an hour allows you to walk along the iconic Avenue of Flags and savor the view.

 Also, stay for the Evening Lighting Ceremony.

Generally, spring and fall are the best times of year to visit due to mild temperatures and lighter crowds.

Enjoy a Monumental Meal.  The Carvers’ Cafe has large picture windows to admire the sculpture while eating.
