Spearfish — 3 nights

Spearfish is a city in Lawrence County, South Dakota, United States. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Black Elk Peak and Black Hills. Get in touch with nature at Bridal Veil Falls and Bear Butte State Park. Go for a jaunt from Spearfish to Savoy to see Roughlock Falls Nature Area about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: tee off at Elkhorn Ridge Golf Club, take an in-depth tour of Days of '76 Museum, learn about winemaking at Belle Joli Winery Sparkling House, and explore the activities along Devil’s Bathtub.
