The classic South Dakota attractions remain: the Black Hills, Badlands National Park, Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial and Wind Cave National Park. You can make an entire vacation of these alone. Pay a visit to Mitchell in late summer, and you'll wonder if you've stumbled upon some ancient harvest ritual when you see the entire palace decorated in corn and grass.
