Hello everyone! You all sound SO helpful with planning trips and I could really use your help! We will be traveling to South Dakota for 1 week in July from Wisconsin. My husband and I have a six year old and a two year old. After reading some of your suggestions, I tried to switch our home base from Rapid City to either Keystone or Custer, but our budget dictates we must stay with Rapid City. Anyway, here is what I have planned. Can anyone tell me if this is doable for a six and two year old or am I setting myself up for a complete disaster? Any and all suggestions welcomed and appreciated!
Leave Wisconsin early a.m.
Visit the Corn Palace, Stay in Chamberlain, SD
Badlands National Park/Scenic Byway, Dinosaur Park
Crazy Horse Memorial, 1880 Train, Reptile Gardens
Mount Rushmore, Soaring Eagle Zipline, Alpine Slide, Bear Country USA
Custer State Park, Flinstone Bedrock City, Magic Show (at Showbarn in Bedrock City)
Visit Deadwood, Devils Tower
South Dakota Air and Space Museum, Wall Drug, Head for home (will stop and stay night somewhere along the way).
It seems doable but I might be a little eager! If there is anything else out there that you think is a "must see", please share!
Thank you so much for your help!
