Badlands National Park

Although Badlands National Park's name might not be the most inviting, its landscape of pinnacles, eroded buttes, spires, and an expansive, pristine mixed-grass prairie remain enticing.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Mammoth Site of Hot Springs. Visiting Black Hills National Forest and Needles Eye Tunnel will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Custer (Custer State Park, Sylvan Lake, & more), Adams House Museum (in Deadwood) and Keystone (Old Fashioned Fudge, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, & more). And it doesn't end there: cruise along Loop Road, look for all kinds of wild species at Windcross Conservancy, explore the striking landscape at Badlands Wall, and look for gifts at Wall Drug Store.
