Interior is a town in Jackson County, South Dakota, United States. Venture out of the city with trips to Wall Drug (in Wall), Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Loop Road) and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site (in Philip). Spend the 20th (Thu) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. It doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Big Badlands Overlook and explore the wealth of natural beauty at White River Valley Overlook.

To find photos, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Interior trip site.

Miami to Interior is an approximately 9.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Miami to Interior due to the time zone difference. Plan for cooler nights when traveling from Miami in August since evenings lows in Interior dip to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can go by car to Rapid City.
