I want to take my kids to Rushmore! The kids are boys, 12 and 14, and we live in Denver. We are "first-world-poor" and the trip is reasonable for a person with five-hundred bucks to blow (yeah, that's about it). I want them to get the same fun my mom was able to give me, and she was poor too! A hotel is fine at the right price but we'd like a cabin and to fish and look around. Everything looks kind of pricey ... we CAN camp but want a room and a swimming pool ... and to play for three nights, can anyone help? I know the places my mom found when I was a kid (very rustic!) were so great and nothing was online back then, so now when I look the whole world is online and I don't know how to tell one from another... I think we are looking for a really reasonably priced cabin stay but I am open to ideas ... Should just call a travel agent?
