Because of the government shutdown, we could not visit Rushmore up close and opted for the Rushmore/Crazy Horse helicopter. Whether you can get up close on the ground or not, this is definitely worth doing. You get views not possible on the ground at both sites plus some breathtaking scenery that you could not see at all from the ground. Our pilot (Mike) answered all questions plus gave us a running narrative describing the back-story on what we were seeing. Even if you have to sleep in the car one night to afford this it is worth it.
