Relive the Wild West in the black hills and prairies of thisnorthern state.  Appreciatelarger-than-life man-made and natural wonders.

Visit Falls Park in downtown SiouxFalls at any time of year. Have a picnic in summer or enjoy the twinklingChristmas lights when the park becomes a winter wonderland. Get a map to findover 50 pieces of three-dimensional art installed outdoors across the city aspart of SculptureWalk. Interact indoors with stingrays and over 800 butterfliesat Sertoma Butterfly House & Marine Cove.

Rapid City has a form ofsculpture walk too. Look for the life-size statues of all former U.S.presidents installed on street corners in a small section of the city. Be awedby ancient reptiles at the Dinosaur Museum, Dinosaur Park and the Museum of Geology.

Walk beneath the giant reliefsculptures of four presidents at MountRushmore near Keystone. A shortdrive away, see the progress being made on the huge carved Crazy Horse Memorial honoring the leader of the Lakota NativeAmerican people.

In the Black Hills, visit Wind Cave National Park, a mixed-grassprairie with animals ranging aboveground. Underground, look for frostwork, whichare unusual needle-shaped calcite growths. While in the area, see other Black Hillsattractions of Custer State Park, Eye of the Needle rock formation and SylvanLake.

Drive through Badlands National Park, where you will see miles of desolate landshaped in buttes and spires, created by erosion of limestone rock. In thisfossil-rich location, the National Park Service invites you to look for fossilsand share photographs and locations with rangers for preservation.

Learn the stories of Wild BillHickok and Calamity Jane in the Wild West town of Deadwood, so named by gold miners who created the town practicallyovernight amid a stand of dead trees. Now the city is far from dead, offeringspas, casinos, high-end dining and many historical points of interest.

For a memorable South Dakotaexperience, bring a pie tin to a shallow fast-moving stream and pan for gold.You probably won’t “strike it rich,” but you might find a colorful souvenir.
