Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Get some cultural insight at Mammoth Site of Hot Springs and Art Expressions. Get outdoors at Needles Eye Tunnel and Jewel Cave National Monument. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Custer: Cascade Falls and Swimming Hole (in Hot Springs) and Wind Cave National Park (in Wind Cave National Park). There's still lots to do: take a peaceful walk through Black Hills National Forest, contemplate the long history of Four Mile Old West Town, immerse yourself in nature at Custer State Park, and cruise along Needles Highway.

Plan my trip to Custer with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

You can drive from Wall to Custer in 2 hours. Another option is to do a combination of bus and taxi.
