This Scenic Drive Through South Dakota Is Downright Mesmerizing

South Dakota is home to the most incredible formations around: the Badlands. This natural wonder inside our famous Badlands National Park is home to the most breathtaking views, no matter where you’re standing. Within this park is the most perfect highway to drive along, truly relax, and see gorgeous sights for miles. If you’ve been to the Badlands but you haven’t driven upon this scenic byway, you’re truly missing out.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
