A little out of the way of the heart of the Black Hills, but a very interesting stop. The views in Hot Springs are to do for, and this little town has a lot of history to offer. If you make your way to the Mammoth Site, stop at Evan's Plunge for a dip in this huge natural hot spring swimming pool

This is the coolest tourist attraction I've ever been to in the world! It is a museum that is built around a live archeological dig. I've never seen anything like it. Although they do live tours year round, the tour times are limited in the winter so call ahead and make sure you get on a live tour…

A museum all about the prehistory of the hills, they found an intact mammoth here! Wonderful museum that takes you back to a time when the Hills were pure and untouched.

National Park
“Deep beneath the vast expanse of the golden, windswept prairie in western South Dakota is the seventh-longest cave in the world and one of the most complex cave systems, a subterranean realm of maze-like passageways, water-carved rock formations and delicate mineral growths. Wind Cave has long been considered a sacred place for Native Americans. In 1903, President Theodore Roosevelt signed the bill that created Wind Cave National Park, the fi rst cave in the nation to be designated as a national park. The park also features more than 30 miles of hiking trails above ground, offering ample opportunities to spot bison, elk and other wildlife roaming freely. When it comes to hiking trails, Wind Cave National Park Ranger Tom Ferrell recommends Rankin Ridge. The 1-mile loop "goes to the highest point in the park with great views. While the fi re tower is closed, the view from the base is wonderful, especially at dawn or sunset," Ferrell says. After advocates brought attention to the fact that only 1,000 bison existed in the U.S. in 1913, Wind Cave received 14 of the animals from the New York Zoological Society. Today, some 500 bison roam the park, favoring prairie dog towns and fresh burn sites for their short grasses. Chat with a ranger upon your arrival to learn of the herd’s latest whereabouts. Nearby Towns: Hot Springs (7 miles); Custer (18 miles)”
