Badlands National Park

— 1 night
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.
On the 10th (Tue), steep yourself in history at Prairie Homestead, explore the striking landscape at Big Badlands Overlook, then hike along Door Trail, then take in the dramatic natural features at Burns Basin Overlook, and finally get great views at Yellow Mounds Overlook. Keep things going the next day: look for gifts 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.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, use the Badlands National Park trip site.

Expect a daytime high around 87°F in August, and nighttime lows around 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
