Few colossal mounds of granite are more universally recognized as Mount Rushmore, which has been making jaws drop since its completion in 1941. Of course, any journey to this awe-inspiring landmark is guaranteed to be remembered for a long time, but you can enhance those memories when you stay at the rustic-chic Lodge at Mount Rushmore, located mere minutes from the main attraction and an hour from Deadwood and Badlands National Park. And bring the family. This kid-friendly spot has an indoor pool and plenty of other ways to keep little ones entertained. 

This exclusive offer of $169 for two nights clocks in at 50% off the standard price of a two-night stay. Just plan your stay between August 15 and October 16. Wifi and a Rushmore National Monument parking pass are complimentary, hot breakfast is provided each day, and the views are free.
