South Dakota completely rocked us!! We first rolled in to South Dakota in early summer of 2020 and had zero expectations of what it would be like. We didn't even have an image in our minds of what to expect. I think that's what made it so memorable and exciting. I remember rolling in to the Black Hills getting goosebumps and feeling like I could NOT wait to get out and explore. The rolling green hills and the huge dark green forests that give off an almost black color from afar were like open arms waving us in to welcome us. That was our first impression. And it kept getting better and better.
We spent close to four weeks in the Black Hills exploring Rapid City, Sturgis, Deadwood, Spearfish, Keystone, and much more. We were blown away by how much there is to do there. We are a family with two kids, ages six and eight at the time, and there was more than enough to keep them entertained. Though we did a lot, we didn't even come close to doing it all.
Here is a LIST of the things we were lucky enough to be able to do while in the Black Hills:
We had a great time exploring all of these places but there is still so much that we didn't get to check out. We fully plan a return to the Black Hills to check these places out.
During our travels, we try to document as much as we can on our YouTube channel (Road Ventures) as well as on Instagram. If you would like to see and follow along on our journey to these amazing places, we would welcome you to subscribe to our channel or Instagram (@road_ventures).
