We are heading down to Mt. Rushmore for our summer vacation. Any suggestions for things to do in the area? We have 2 kids aged 3 and 5. TIA! Happy summer!

One thing you do NOT want to miss...see Mt Rushmore in the evening after dark. We got lucky and got a full moon over the monument that was lit up for night time viewing. Incredible!
