Once you’re done with the main attractions (we’re talking Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, etc.) then you’re ready to see the real, rough and tumble Wild West! Read on for recommendations on the best Black Hills sightseeing.
Rocky peaks, prairie plains and fragrant Ponderosa pines make up the region known as the Black Hills of South Dakota. Spanning 1.2 million acres, each city has its own soul and personality. Here’s what they’re known for.
Inspired menus and clever cocktails aren’t exactly top-of-mind when you think “South Dakota” but if you know where to look, you’ll find some hidden gems! Here are all of our favorites.
It’s easy to forget just how big the Black Hills are. Spanning over 1.2 million acres, they host an infinite number of attractions and things to do. It would take years to see it all. That makes this a great place to vacation and you can stay as as long, or little, as you’d like. We recommend planning for at least 3 days but you could easily stay entertained for weeks. Here’s our perfect Black Hills Vacation Itinerary.
