Instead of driving west this summer for some elevated adventure, head northwest to the Black Hills of South Dakota! A ten hour drive from Manhattan, the Black Hills are one of the smallest, most isolated mountain ranges in the United States -- one of America’s true hidden gems. See the world famous Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial. Hike Black Elk Peak. Find Black Hills Gold in Hill City. Drive the Needles Highway in Custer State Park. Stay in historic Deadwood, Sturgis, or Rapid City. Explore Wind Cave and Badlands National Parks! Visit blackhillsbadlands.com to learn more and to plan your visit!
