I hope everybody had a great extended Labor Day weekend! We brought the kids to the Black Hills for their first visit. While trying to plan the trip I wanted to make sure I gave the kids some down time just to have fun from all of the driving and site seeing. Yes, they’re teenagers and don’t get as wound up as they used to while being stuck in a car, sitting still for a 7+ hour road trip, but boredom can set in easily for teens. When Jim & I went to the Black Hills for our honeymoon 22 years ago we really enjoyed the caves so I was excited to see that Rushmore Cave not only has an amazing cave to tour but they also have activities that were sure to thrill our entire family. We stayed in Keystone while we were in the Black Hills so Rushmore Cave was only a short drive from the Lodge.
Upon arriving to Rushmore Cave we noticed immediately that the property was inviting and very clean. Everything looked fairly new and there was plenty of room to get around. We first entered the gift shop to purchase tickets and were lucky enough to join a Cave Tour right away. View full post »
