Maybe you could’ve guessed this from the name, but chances are you’ve never really seen the famous falls of the Big Sioux River near downtown Sioux Falls. History shows that these cascades of water gushing over massive slabs of Pink Quartz were a popular rendezvous site centuries ago for bison-hunting Lakota and Dakota tribes, French fur trappers, and early land speculators.
Explore the Black Hills, Yellowstone, and the Wild West on this newly revised tour. Start in Cody with Cowboys and the Rodeo. Then venture into Yellowstone National Park for scenic views and wildlife. Next, head to Deadwood for a unique perspective on the Wild West. Enjoy the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore, a jeep tour through a Buffalo Herd, and the Crazy Horse Memorial. This tour also includes the new Oglala Lakota Living History Village located just outside Badlands National Park.
From your hotel in the very center of Deadwood you are in the thick of the action, you’ll walk amongst gunfighters and tourists, saloon girls and shopkeepers and enjoy every minute of a town that thinks they’re living in 1876. You spend one full day with Deadwood sightseeing, and one full day deep in the Black Hills. Ride Jeeps through a Buffalo Herd, and discover the beauty and history of these sacred hills. This is Travel that’s Fun! The Best Hotel, the best sightseeing. If you only live once shouldn’t you have a good time?
The dust flies and the ground trembles as the largest herd of buffalo in the country are rounded up and driven past you by cowboys on horseback. Designated viewing spots, described as “pretty darn close,” are picked out on the hill and mountainsides by the park rangers. If you are looking for a “Taste of the Real American West,” it doesn’t get much better than this.
