Travel to South Dakota for monumental moments, hidden gems, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences at some of the nation’s most breathtaking attractions.

Step back in time and explore dinosaur fossil sites, relive Wild West history, and celebrate the Native American culture that still permeates the state today. From our national and state parks to our history and heritage, South Dakota is the home of Great Faces and Great Places. We are thrilled to welcome you for a visit.
