At a Glance

Capture the spirit of the West where pioneers, explorers and ranchers forged American ideals of adventure and rugged individualism. In South Dakota, experience Mount Rushmore and the other-worldly beauty of Badlands National Park. Walk the trail at Wyoming’s Devils Tower, our country’s first National Monument, and marvel at American technological innovation at North Dakota’s massive wind, oil, coal and gas energy complexes. Visit two state capitols, dine on a Missouri River paddle wheeler and delve into the heritage of the Native Americans who inhabited these lands centuries ago.
