Family Activities and Attractions

Family Activities and Attractions in the Black HillsNestled among the prairies of the upper-Midwest, you’ll find majestic granite spires, pine covered peaks and unique rock outcroppings. The Black Hills of South Dakota, home to Mount Rushmore National Memorial, is full of scenery, rich history and tons of family-friendly activities.

The Black Hills region 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, as well as enjoy extreme, and not-so-extreme, outdoor adventures.

The history of the Black Hills 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.
