Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Mammoth Site of Hot Springs and Art Expressions. Kids will enjoy Jewel Cave National Monument and The Museum @ Black Hills Institute. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Custer: Insideout (in Hill City) and Keystone (Presidential Trail & Professor Samuel's Portrait Emporium). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, take a memorable drive along Iron Mountain Road, and admire all the interesting features of Wildlife Loop Road.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Custer tour itinerary maker site .

Minneapolis to Custer is an approximately 4.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Minneapolis to Custer due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Minneapolis in August, expect slightly colder with lows of 51°F in Custer. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Wall.

Wall is a town in Pennington County, South Dakota, United States. On the 16th (Fri), take in the dramatic natural features at Badlands Wall, then admire all the interesting features of Loop Road, then explore the wealth of natural beauty at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, and finally browse the different shops at Wall Drug.

Plan my Wall trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by car from Custer to Wall takes 2 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and bus. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Custer in August; daily highs in Wall reach 87°F and lows reach 58°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
