Rapid City, South Dakota: City of Presidents Walking Tour
Many cities around the country have discovered the joys of placing statues or artwork on city streets. With Mount Rushmore just up the road (up Mount Rushmore Road, in fact), Rapid City opted to try Presidents as an attraction.
Therefore, when you go for a walk in downtown, you'll see statues of more than 30 of our Chief Executives. They are quite well done. Richard Nixon is pictured. By the way, John Kennedy is said to be the most popular in terms of requests for directions, photos, etc.
An information center is located on Main St. near 7th Street; it has a handy guide to who is where.
Say, isn't that Millard Fillmore?
