Fewer than 400 people call Keystone home year-round, but the population explodes in summer when crowds flock to nearby Mount Rushmore.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Wades Gold Mill and National Presidential Wax Museum. Family-friendly places like The Museum @ Black Hills Institute and Angostura Recreation Area will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Windcross Conservancy (in Buffalo Gap), Native American Educational and Cultural Center (in Crazy Horse) and Mammoth Site of Hot Springs (in Hot Springs). Pack the 9th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Prairie Homestead, appreciate the history behind Mount Rushmore National Memorial, do a tasting at Naked Winery South Dakota, and admire all the interesting features of Big Thunder Gold Mine.
