We just returned from Yellowstone and Mount Rushmore. I think Mount Rushmore is a wonderful place to take a family vacation! This is one of our family's favorite vacation spots during this tour. It’s a truly moving and inspiring monument.
I think Grand Teton is a must do. Though I recommend it for anybody to enjoy its beautiful scenery, great hiking, lots to do. And you may take some time to walk around the city of Jackson Hole. It’s a very cute, upscale town. Don’t forget t ...I think Grand Teton is a must do. Though I recommend it for anybody to enjoy its beautiful scenery, great hiking, lots to do.
