At a Glance

Enjoy the fun of shared time as you explore Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, Badlands National Park and the beautiful Black Hills. Saddle up for a Western trail ride and discover ancient fossils and lunar-like deposits in the Badlands. Share stories around an open fire while you learn, laugh and create memories for both generations.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Go horseback riding, splash in a historic warm water spring, visit a mammoth sink hole and learn how to pan for gold like Potato Creek Johnny.
  • Experience Custer State Park’s “wildlife loop” in search of buffalo, pronghorns, begging burrows and big horn sheep.
  • Take a chair lift up to a ridge for a special view of Mount Rushmore and feel the wind in your hair as you zip back down on the Alpine slide.
