The Midwestern state of South Dakota is definitely not the most popular tourist destination in the US – many Americans haven’t even been there. But with a slew of sights and activities including gorgeous natural areas, one of the most famous landmarks in the world, wild drinking spots, and quirky attractions, it really does merit a visit. The best way to take in all the action? We recommend a long road trip, as you enjoy all the beauty and weirdness state has to offer.
