South Dakota Has A Grand Canyon And It’s Too Beautiful For Words

Even though the Grand Canyon is one of the most visited natural tourist attractions in the country, South Dakota has a natural canyon of its own that is just as amazing, if not more. This gorgeous natural gem is known as Spearfish Canyon and could easily give its counterpart in Arizona a run for its money.

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!

Spearfish Canyon was even used as a filming site for the 1990 movie Dances with Wolves. Tons of people visit every single year to enjoy the same sights and other activities.

This place is nothing short of jaw dropping, and it is one of many other gorgeous spots that South Dakota gets to claim as its own, like these other stunning places found in the state.
