Interstate 90 Practically Runs Through All Of South Dakota And It's A Beautiful Drive
Don’t you just love it when you can take a drive and NOT have to rely on a GPS? This rarely happens, as nearly every route has twists and turns, which is why we love long roads like beautiful Interstate 90 that practically run through the entire state (in this case, South Dakota):
Beginning in Seattle, Washington, and meandering a whopping 3,021 miles to Boston, Massachusetts, Interstate 90 is a unique road that passes through such landscapes as the Pacific Northwest, mountains, northeast, and, of course, the Great Plains of South Dakota.
Running along 415 miles of lower-to-mid SoDak, I-90 showcases many of the scenes that make the Mount Rushmore State so unique, including the Black Hills, the Missouri River, and the prairie.
When it comes to charming small towns, there is no better South Dakota road than I-90, which runs past such communities as Mitchell, Spearfish, Wall, and Sturgis.
In addition to these (and many more!) towns, I-90 also boasts close proximity to some of South Dakota's most revered landmarks, a la Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, and the Needles Highway.
While you can easily drive I-90 in a day, we recommend taking a few days to stop and explore, as there is plenty to see and do along the route.
Don't forget to also shop and eat during your trip, as there are plenty of one-of-a-kind boutiques and delicious mom-and-pop restaurants along the way!
