Don’t miss the ultimate foodie event, The Baltimore Sun's Secret Supper

Mount Rushmore

Grand View Terrace is a nice spot for family photo ops or just to take in the view. From the terrace, visitors can follow a half-mile loop trail that takes them to the base of the mountain and the studio of Mt. Rushmore's sculptor, Gutzon Borglum. Those presidential visages are a symbolic representation of power, which has made the monument "a very political place" since its beginnings, says the memorial's interpretation chief, Judy Olson.
