Check whether the tour package is a fit. Tour packages may be specifically for seniors, families or singles. They may be for rugged adventurers or for those who prefer travel comforts. Some include stays at large chain hotels, while others book at local venues. The number of people in the tour group may be large or small. Some travelers may want a smaller group for more individualized attention, while others may prefer larger groups so they can socialize with more of their fellow tourists.
Side attractions to look for in a Mount Rushmore tour package include the Crazy Horse mountain and memorial, Badlands National Park, Custer State Park, Deadwood and Fort Hays, the filming site of "Dances with Wolves." Riding all-terrain vehicles, watching a buffalo roundup, having a chuck wagon supper and exploring the Cosmos Mystery Site, where gravity doesn't seem to work normally, are some special activities.Learn more about Geography
