im in the process of looking into flying out there from PA. havent even cked flight costs yet, to see if i can afford it.... my husband and 16yr old son never been out there and would like to attempt seeing mt rushmore, 4th of july events are on the 3rd. it appears keystone and custer are closest towns for lodging.... we would fly in to rapid city regional and have to rent a car then drive out that way. get there the 2nd of july and and go home either sunday the 5th or monday the 6th... I went to mt rushmore national park site and read the info.... airport is about 35 miles from mt rushmore? thats what it said.
anyways, i feel the closer we stay to it the more exp the hotels are, correct? can anyone recommend reasonable decent places to stay in whatever town thats nearby? and would anyone be able to assist in car rentals, near the airport im guessing is where we would have to rent one...
i realize its 2 wks away and im pushing it, but we couldnt decide where to go this yr and still not sure if we will go here if flights are to costly from PHiladelphia, PA.. where is crazy horse at from mt rushmore area? maybe we could see that too. i read that on 90 i could drive about 2.5 hrs to devils tower, id love to see that too.. i believe old faithful is to far west in wyoming to see while we are out there isnt it?
sorry for all the questions, but looking for as much guidance as i can get. thanks so much
