Badlands National Park

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Wildlife Loop Road (in Custer) and Big Thunder Gold Mine (in Keystone). Next up on the itinerary: take a memorable drive along Loop Road, get engrossed in the history at Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, buy something for everyone on your list at Wall Drug Store, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Notch Trail.

To find maps, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Badlands National Park itinerary planner.

Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
