“Located in a scenic ponderosa pine forest, this 1,279-acre park is a peaceful retreat for hiking, bird-watching and viewing colorful wildflowers. However, its most spectacular sight lies deep beneath the surface. Discover Jewel Cave, the third-longest cave in the world, which boasts more than 180 miles of mapped passageways as well as illuminated caverns, glittering dogtooth spar crystals, textured “cave popcorn” and ceilings dripping with stalactites. From the 20-minute Discovery Talk to the Historic Lantern Tour to the Wild Caving excursion characterized by rope-assists and belly-crawls, there’s an experience for every visitor at Jewel Cave. The monument’s most popular adventure is the Scenic Cave Tour. This experience allows visitors to view the cave’s most astounding formations. As a result, the tour tends to sell out in summer and holiday periods, so reserve in advance at BlackHillsVacations.com. Nearby Towns: Custer (12.5 miles)”

“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”

“Imagine legendary Lakota warrior Crazy Horse sitting tall atop his spirited horse, arm outstretched as he points to the lands of his people. This image, envisioned by sculptor Korczak Ziolkowski in 1948, is being brought to life today by blasting and sculpting crews working year-round. Crazy Horse is the world’s largest mountain carving in progress, standing 563 feet high and stretching 641 feet long. From May through October, Crazy Horse Memorial hosts a variety of special events, so be sure to ask what’s happening when you’re on-site. Depending on the month, you might join one of two volksmarches, shop an artsand-crafts expo, catch a night blast or the Legends in Light® Laser Show, or experience a Native American dance performance. Keep your eyes and ears open for Brulé, the world-renowned musical experience that blends original rock music with traditional Native American dance and instruments. Nearby Towns: Custer (5 miles); Hill City (10.5 miles)”
