50 Instant Itineraries
Black Hills, South Dakota
Once home to Lakota Sioux tribes, the Black Hills’ rugged granite formations, clear streams and labyrinthine caves possess a captivating beauty and an almost-spiritual power. Days quickly fill with hiking, fishing, exploring Native American history and tracking down bison for those one-of-a-kind vacation pics. You could spend a week or more here, but if you have only two days, highlights include driving the spectacular Needles Highway in Custer State Park, touring Jewel Cave National Monument and visiting iconic Mount Rushmore National Monument.
