Mount Rushmore City Spotlight


Mount Rushmore in South Dakota is home to one of America’s most iconic and patriotic attractions: The Mount Rushmore National Memorial, featuring massive carvings of four of the nation’s most influential presidents, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.

More than 3 million people visit the mountainside every year, and with Presidents’ Day just around the corner, we wanted to share the top-rated gas stations in nearby Rapid City, the go-to destination for all of the Mount Rushmore visitors.

Fun fact: Theodore Roosevelt was the first president of the United States to make a public appearance in a car.
