Must See Places In The United States
When traveling around the country, trying to see all of the great natural and manmade wonders that the US has to offer, South Dakota and Mount Rushmore is certainly at the top of the list. While your choices are vast and the places to visit are varied, there is something special about seeing the sculpted faces of those great presidents staring down from the mountain. Along with certain monuments in Washington D.C. this is a US historic monument that should be visited if possible.
While you are out exploring the natural wonders of the United States, there are many man made wonders that are also something that you should experience. While traveling you will want to take a trip to see the arch of St. Louis, then head on over to New York City to visit the Empire State Building, as well as the Statue of Liberty. All are sights that you will not want to miss out on.
Experiencing the launch pad first hand from Cape Canaveral, as well as a Space Shuttle launch, is something amazing and that will never be forgotten. Sure you can watch the amazement from your television, but that will not give you the feel of the roaring engines.
On that point there are indeed several marvelous places to experience. However there’s something extraordinary about Rushmore. Operation on the sculpture started out in 1927 and was not polished off until 1941. The estimated price of the envision touched barely beneath one million dollars and more than 400 tons of rock was lifted for the sculpture. Every year, reported by the national park service, more than three million travelers experience the park and marvel at the achievement. The park is set in the notable Black Hills of South Dakota and at that place there are several of outdoors activities for travelers to experience.
There are organized events for visitors and if you sign up early enough and your application is accepted, your scout troop can participate in the flag raising ceremony in front of the monument. Many outdoor activities are available from hiking and fishing and camping in the camp ground area. It is a great learning experience and is truly a sight to behold and brings a sense of wonder and awe to children and adults of all ages. It is a piece of America and American history that should be experienced by every American.
