I would stay away from Rushmore, as it is a nuthouse in summer.
Just a tacky tourist trap anyway.
To each their own. It's what you make it. If you're taken in by all the cheap souvenirs (where you can find everywhere) then maybe visiting a memorial to our founding fathers really isn't for you.

No disrespect for your founding fathers, but I just don't see the point. Fighting through horrendous traffic, and battling through crowds of idiots just to catch a glimpse of some carved heads simply isn't worth it.
I would much rather travel to a place with few people, and take in a natural wonder that God created. Much more meaningful.

By the way, I have been there. Never even considered going back.

And also, very near to Yellowstone, is the Little Bighorn Monument. It's more than a "monument" as it's really the entire battlefield just as it was in 1876. There is nothing all the way to the horizon in all directions to spoil the remoteness of the site. There aren't many places left like that in the continental U.S. You can tour all the areas where Custer's three-pronged attack got bogged down as well as the site of the Sioux camp. They have a nice Visitor's Center. A good place for the grand-kids to run till their tongues hang out.
