Keystone, gateway to Rushmore

  4 votes

Keystone SD is a small town with a lot of potential fun for you the traveller. From here you may tour the Rushmore caves, a vast network of fascenating underground rooms. It's quite a hike up to them but very wiorth it! Don't miss Mt. Rushmore and the Crazy Horse monument while you are there.

Favourite spots:
Mount Rushmore. This is a breathtaking monument to American history. The mood of the mountian changes minute by minute. You can watch it all day and it will seem different at every blink. There is a museum below the viewing stand which is full of history and artifacts. Well worth the parking fee it see this free monument. Dogs are allowed on the hiking trails. Make sure you have a leash! Crazy Horse monument. After a beautiful drive through the Black Hills visit this work in progress and see how a monument is made! There are wonderful shops and a Native American museum.

What's really great:
The best thing for me was being able to buy a chunk of the mountian where the crazy horse statue is coming to life. It's only a donation and you can take your pick of lovely chunks of mountian!

Sights:
Everywhere you look! you could even see antelope!

Accommodations:
Many campgrounds are in the area as well as hotels and B&B's.

Restaurants:
Several places to eat are at Keystone, Mt. Rushmore and the Crazy Horse complex. While there sample the buffalo stew!

Other recommendations:
Black Hills gold jewlery shops! Get it at the source!
