My son has convinced me that we NEED to take a road trip this summer. We'll be traveling from Minneapolis to Mount Rushmore. I've only been through that area once, and it was on a cross-country road trip where we were kind of pressed for time (this was pre-kids, and we needed to get back to Minneapolis somewhat quickly, so we pretty much just saw Mount Rushmore and zoomed home).
Any suggestions for things to do with kids in the Mount Rushmore & Black Hills area, or anywhere along the southern part of S. Dakota while we're en route?
Mt Rushmore is a get-out-and-look sort of thing, but there's a ton right around there:
The drive is not super interesting, but Wall Drug and the Mitchell Corn Palace are required tourist stops.
Thanks. I've seen those Wall Drug bumper stickers...now we'll be able to see what all the fuss is about! :)
