Westward Ho!

Westward Ho!

Badlands & Black Hills

September 12 - 18, 2020

This tour can stand alone or be a great lead up to our National Parks and Canadian Rockies tour. The first 3 days are long drives but each will have a special stop. Our first night will be the amazing West Baden Springs resort. Next is Independence and the Truman Library. Then on to the rugged beauty of Badlands National Park. These striking geologic deposits contain one of the world’s richest fossil beds. After a quick stop at the famous Wall Drug Store, we will make our way to Rapid City, our base for the next 3 nights as we explore the Black Hills. The variety of this region is extraordinary - from the sculpted glory of Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse, the painted cliffs of the Black Hills, the old west classic town of Deadwood to the roaming buffalo that we view by jeep in Custer State Park. There will even be great entertainment at a chuckwagon dinner. Please join us for this classic western adventure and consider continuing on to the National Parks tour afterwards!
