Keystone — 10 nights

Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
Venture out of the city with trips to Custer (Sylvan Lake, Needles Eye Tunnel, &more), Windcross Conservancy (in Buffalo Gap) and Hot Springs (The Mammoth Site of Hot Springs & Cascade Falls). Pack the 4th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. There's much more to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, take a memorable drive along Iron Mountain Road, immerse yourself in nature at Custer State Park, and find something for the whole family at Rush Mountain Adventure Park.

To find ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Keystone travel planning site.
