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.
Kick off your visit on the 8th (Tue): contemplate the long history of Prairie Homestead, explore the striking landscape at Big Badlands Overlook, trek along Door Trail, then explore the striking landscape at Burns Basin Overlook, and finally explore the striking landscape of Yellow Mounds Overlook. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get engrossed in the history at Wounded Knee: The Museum, take in the dramatic natural features at Badlands Wall, then cruise along Loop Road, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Panorama Point Overlook.

In September, daytime highs in Badlands National Park are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 49°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
