Fodor's Review

One of the nation's most iconic attractions, the giant likenesses of Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt, lies just 65 miles west of Badlands. An excellent interpretive center, trail network, and patriotic night lighting ceremony make the trip even more memorable, as does a Youth Exploration Area added in 2015.
