While South Dakota is known for Mount Rushmore and Badlands National Park, these must-sees are only a fraction of what the state has to offer. With its abundant glacial lakes, winding rivers, and waterfalls, South Dakota technically has more miles of shoreline than Florida. In addition to its landscape and access to national parks, you’ll find attractions and events in neighboring towns, like the Sturgis Annual Motorcycle Rally, Rapid City’s incredible brewery scene, and the 1,300 bison that call Custer State Park home.
The Black Hills are a small mountain range in western South Dakota, extending into Wyoming and encompassing the Black Hills National Forest, Badlands National Park, and Mount Rushmore. Here, you’ll find natural outdoor attractions to fill your day, like Custer State Park, Bear Country USA wildlife park, and Sylvan Lake. Add something new to your adventure and sightsee the area by the 1880 Train tour, wander the historic Main Street of Deadwood, or visit the Black Hills Mining Museum and pan for gold.
You won’t just find plains and farmland on your trip, but a variety of stunning landscapes, from diverse prairies, rolling green hillsides, dense forest, and jagged mountains, to quaint towns and cities in between. Reconnect with nature and ease back into a slower pace for your next trip with South Dakota vacation rentals.
