When you travel to the Badlands National Park and Black Hills area in South Dakota, you’ll find the monumental attractions are much like the bison roaming the wide-open prairies: they’re clustered close together and each is as equally majestic as the previous one. 

On the eastern side, there’s Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and Badlands National Park, home to curious-looking hills with magical colors. Just north lies the quirky attraction of Wall Drug in South Dakota, a popular rest stop known for its 5-cent coffee and Jackalope statue. Beyond lies Mount Rushmore in Keystone, S.D., hot springs in, well, Hot Springs, S.D., and two sites that give you a rare glimpse into the underbelly of the Earth: Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National Monument.

Come up for air and head to Custer for Broadway-caliber performances and wildlife viewing at nearby Custer State Park. Then head to the Crazy Horse Memorial, the largest monument carving in the world. This sculpture of Oglala Lakota Chief Crazy Horse is still under construction. Head to Deadwood’s cobblestone-lined Main Street and Wild West reenactments. In Hill City or Keystone, board The 1880 Train.
