17 Not-So-Hidden Hidden Gems You’ll Find Only In South Dakota

We love to write about hidden gems in our state – the places you might not know about. But South Dakota also has some very famous attractions that we don’t want to forget. Winter is a great time to visit many of these places. The tourists have gone home, and they’re less crowded.

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
