The Black Hills of South Dakota, a land of monumental mountain carvings and monumental vacation adventures!

The Black Hills of South Dakota, or in the words of the Lakota, "Paha Sapa", erupt from an ocean of prairie grass into vast pine and spruce covered mountains and granite peaks. Mount Rushmore National Memorial carved in the granite of the Black Hills of South Dakota, is a Shrine of Democracy to forever honor George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, four great American presidents.  Since its completion in 1941 millions of visitors have been awe-struck by its magnitude, and today an even larger monument is emerging.  Just a few miles south of Mount Rushmore, another Black Hills mountain is being carved to honor Crazy Horse, the visionary leader committed to preserving the traditions and values of the Lakota way of life.

Legends of the Old West still live on in the Black Hills of South Dakota, from the gambling halls and saloons of Deadwood where Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane left their mark on the Wild West to Custer where thundering herds of buffalo and wild horses still roam free.  New legends rumble from the Black Hills every August when the thunder of hundreds of thousands of Harley riders converge on the Black Hills for the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

Create your own legend in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  A monumental vacation adventure awaits you!
