Let’s go to Mount Rushmore!

The Downtown Marceline Foundation is helping to promote an (almost) all-inclusive motorcoach trip to Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, and the Black Hills of South Dakota. A small percentage of the proceeds will be given to the Foundation so that we can continue our revitalization efforts on Main Street USA. So you’ll not only get an amazing vacation, you’ll be helping our tiny nonprofit at the same time!

This all-American trip goes for 7 days and 6 nights, and you’ll only pay the one price (per person) for everything below – that means the travel, hotels, listed meals, and tickets are included!

Check out the detailed itinerary below, and view some videos about the places included in the trip.
