South Dakota It's truly where history comes to life.
From prehistoric dinosaurs, to the Native Americans that first called this land home, through the settlers that came from across the globe to make a better life, South Dakota is extraordinarily rich in history and culture. See the 60-foot-tall faces on Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Behold the world's largest in-progress mountain carving at Crazy Horse Memorial. Follow the trail of Lewis & Clark, find museums of every size and focus, and experience the Wild West of legends.
