We all have different feelings about traveling right now. When you’re ready, we hope you feel safe, inspired, and excited to explore South Dakota.
If it weren’t for the assumption that the Great Plains are just that — plain — you would’ve known the truth about South Dakota long ago: its peaks and valleys, waterfalls and rivers, and ancient grasslands and canyons are gorgeous and ever-changing. Here, the first hints of the Wild West are right outside your front door. The world’s largest caves stretch underneath your feet, and history is etched into the granite before your eyes.
To see it all for yourself, pack up the Airstream, aim for I-90, and start your family’s journey in one of the four regions below. Each holds experiences that are uniquely South Dakota, getting you close to adventures that are nowhere near plain but that are, indeed, great.
