Here’s South Dakota’s Top Outdoor Attraction And You’ll Definitely Want To Do It

It’s no question that Mount Rushmore is the top attraction in South Dakota (it is nicknamed the Mount Rushmore State, after all), and while it is awesome, it is a little lacking in some places. As far as an outdoor attraction that you can get up close, personal, and hands-on with, there are none that tops this animal park that is actually right near the great monument itself: the Reptile Gardens.

This is more than just a zoo or garden, it is an experience like no other. Even if you don’t find yourself to be a fan of reptiles, anyone of all ages can enjoy this place. It’s been around for as long as Mount Rushmore and will continue to delight visitors for years ahead.
