This Beautiful Video Captures Everything We Love About South Dakota

South Dakota doesn’t get enough attention when it comes to the sheer beauty of our state! Sure, everyone knows Mount Rushmore, and they probably learned about the Wounded Knee Massacre in school (although we’re not sure many of them would remember where it took place), but our incredible state as so much more to offer. New visitors to South Dakota are often stunned by how much there is to see and do here, from Wind Cave and Badlands National Parks to the rich Native American history and the important part our state played in the Lewis and Clark expedition.

This incredibly beautiful aerial video, shot by helicopter over some of our favorite places, captures everything we love about life in South Dakota!

If you live in South Dakota, you know how lucky we are to have such a stunning state; if you have yet to visit, it’s time to plan your trip! You might be surprised by how many hidden gems are waiting for you to discover!
