We had come to see Mt. Rushmore, but happened to see signs for the Reptile Gardens. My kids hardly remember Mt. Rushmore, but still talk about visiting the Reptile Gardens. There are so many fascinating things to see, and so many demonstrations. We particularly liked the Alligator Show, and we got some wonderful pictures of our family in the brightly blooming "Aviary" style room. This was so much more than we expected! My kids were 7, 5 and 2 at the time, and ALL of them loved it. The adults loved it too!
