I’m so excited to be sharing a sneak peek into our family’s vacation this summer thanks to South Dakota Department of Tourism! We are so eager to go and the girls have asked to start packing already!
Okay friends, any guesses?
Yes, South Dakota!
We will be visiting some really cool places, specifically, Custer State Park, Hot Springs, and The Badlands + Blackhills!
I think that’s what the girls are most excited about seeing in Custer State Park! In the park are 1,300 bison, and they can weigh up to 2,000 pounds or more! So that will be such a sight to see. We’ve had buffalo on our family farm throughout the years, but only a few at a time, so to see an entire large heard will be amazing.
There’s a lot of scenic routes through Custer State Park that we are planning on taking our dear sweet time on, to do some exploring and sight seeing. I can’t wait for the views, and I might even be able to bring you guys a Facebook Live video while we are there! YAY!
In the Black Hills we are planning on seeing the famous Crazy Horse Memorial for sure! It’s the world’s largest mountain carving in progress. The workers carved the 87½-foot-tall Crazy Horse face in 1998, and have been working on the horse’s head since then, which will be 219 feet tall! Wow!
Also in the Badlands? Mount Rushmore of course! I can’t wait for the girls to see this up close and experience the breathtaking views and carvings! Plus, learn a little history as well!
We are really excited to see Hot Springs as well! Our little Charlie girl is quite the scientist, and she is going to love the Mammoth Site! There’s also the Wind Cave, the Wild Horse Sanctuary, Evan’s Plunge Waterpark, and Pioneer Museum.
Seriously, how awesome does this look?! This trip is going to be a one of a kind memory for our entire family.
As soon as I get our itineraries, I’ll be posting again to let you know when we plan on going! And the awesome part is that I will be doing Facebook LIVE videos at each site! I’m so happy and excited that I will be able to share it all with you! The views will be breathtaking!
