Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota

While Mount Rushmore often gets the most attention, there are five additional national park sites, along with historic towns and herds of bison, a short distance away from the iconic South Dakota attraction.

How do you find out about the area’s gems en route to Yellowstone? Ask the locals at Black Hills Vacations who have traveled the roads, know the towns and can recommend the best places to visit. They even offer National Parks and Monuments Black Hills Vacation packages and a Black Hills Great 8 package that highlights the area’s top sights.

“We’ve experienced what we sell, says Susan Johnson, chief executive director of Black Hills Vacations. “We feel a stepped up responsibility to make sure we are taking care of people traveling to the Black Hills and South Dakota and that includes outrageous customer service.”

Take, for instance, the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, of which you can only make advanced reservations for a special tour of Launch Control Facility Delta-01 through Black Hills Vacations. The historic site pays homage to the fact that from 1963-91, 1,000 nuclear missiles sat in the prairie of South Dakota on constant alert and ready to be launched during the Cold War.

Black Hills Vacations can reserve this little-known tour for you in addition to your lodging and other activity passes for one convenient price.

Other national park sites to see include Wind Cave National Park, Jewel Cave National Monument and Badlands National Park, all within close driving distance to Mount Rushmore.
