When the Black Hills of South Dakota come up in a conversation with friends, what comes to mind? Mount Rushmore, Wild Bill Hickok, horse riding or a Western Adventure? Why not a romantic adventure. If you’ve been in the Black Hills before you’ve seen the sparkling rocks, smelled the pine trees or even gambled a little in Deadwood. You have dreams of discovering your own gold, silver and jewels, or falling in love with your significant other.
Out of the Great Plains rise mystical mountains where the deer and the buffalo roamed and provided sustenance for the Native Americans who cherished the Black Hills and honored the spirits that dwell there. Today you can still see herds of buffalo in Custer State Park as you drive through and hear their grunts and snorts and watch the faces on you children marvel at the sights. Today the Black Hills provide tourists with a vision of a historic past complete with gunfights, rodeos and famous old gold mines. At Mount Moriah Cemetery in Deadwood you can see were Calamity Jane and her good friend Wild Bill Hickok remain as part of rich Western History.
Whether you are looking for quiet time at a resort or campground, a family experience at an authentic chuck wagon dinner-show, trail rides or spend time looking up at four presidents at Mount Rushmore, you will have a great time. If you like world famous caves you have Jewel Cave up past the City of Custer or farther south Wind Cave, both managed by the National Park Service. Keystone, South Dakota located by Mount Rushmore draws people from all over the world who want to experience both the western storefronts or tour one of the original gold mines or 1880 train ride.
