They’ve stood tall in the Black Hills of South Dakota for more than 70 years. It’s known as America’s Shrine of Democracy. They are just one part of South Dakota’s Great Faces and Great Places. It’s Mount Rushmore National Memorial. And soon, the presidents will be on the move, maybe you can meet them in person!

How? The mascots of Jefferson, Lincoln, Washington and Roosevelt are on the move to multiple cities in the coming months. The mascots will be touring Kansas City, Des Moines, Minneapolis, and Omaha. First stop, Kansas City over Memorial Day weekend. If you’re in the area, make sure you follow along on the twitter hashtag, #RushmoreMascots, this blog, or on to see where you can meet up with the presidents from Mount Rushmore in person. It’s a once in a lifetime photo opportunity you don’t want to miss!



To top it off, you’ll be able to sign-up to win an exclusive vacation to the Black Hills of South Dakota where you can start “Your American Journey.” To enter the vacation giveaway and see a full listing of where the mascots are going, visit

“Your American Journey” through South Dakota doesn’t stop at Mount Rushmore. It’s the places along the way like reliving the pioneer spirit in De Smet at the Laura Ingalls Wilder homestead; it’s the quirky only in South Dakota stops like The World’s Only Corn Palace and Wall Drug. The experience of being surrounded by 1,300 bison and a band of begging burros at the second largest state park in the nation – Custer State Park. All of these stops and more is what will truly build your “American Journey” to be one that you will always remember.
