Family Activities and Attractions in the Black HillsWe call it the new rolling normal! After extensive research and new protocols in place, our Black Hills attractions are welcoming guests back in a safe and strategic manner. Check out our BOGO offers!

You'll love exploring our Black Hills of South Dakota, home to Mount Rushmore National Memorial.  The Black Hills has one of the largest concentrations of public and national parks in the region—from the jagged spires of Badlands National Park to the roaming buffalo of Custer State Park—you can explore real national treasures and outdoor adventures.

Our history ranges from prehistoric times to the Cold War. You’ll also find Wild West, Native American and western heritage at an assortment of museums. A vacation in the Black Hills may only last a week or two, but it is sure to create a lifetime of memories. Make planning easy by booking one of our family fun vacation packages or build your own.
