観光のピークのシーズンは夏ですが、晩春と初秋は人が少なく、快適な気候で、農地、川沿いの丘陵地、大草原、山の牧場など、さまざまな土地を旅するのによい季節です。 東から西へ走る州間高速道路 90 号線(Interstate 90)を車で走れば、自然の驚異と沿道の名所を楽しむすばらしいロードトリップを体験できます。

1 年間に約 300 万人の人がラシュモア山国立記念碑(Mount Rushmore National Memorial)を訪れます。 地元の人々は旅人に、ここでは日の出は特別な時間だと言います。 ラシュモア山(Mount Rushmore)は東を向いており、早朝には 山肌に彫られたアメリカの大統領を撮影するのに絶好の光線が射します。

サウスダコタ州(South Dakota)にはそれ以外に 5 つの国立公園があります。バッドランズ国立公園(Badlands National Park)、ウィンドケーブ国立公園(Wind Cave National Park)、ジュエルケーブ国定公園(Jewel Cave National Monument)、ミズーリ川国立レクリエーション河川(Missouri National Recreational River)、冷戦の歴史を伝えるミニットマン・ミサイル国定史跡(Minuteman Missile National Historic Site)です。

アメリカインディアンの文化、西部開拓時代の歴史、野生生物について学べるすばらしい場所です。 クレイジーホース記念碑(Crazy Horse memorial)はすべてのネイティブアメリカンに敬意を表す、現在も製作中の山肌に彫られた彫刻で、群衆が描かれています。カスター州立公園(Custer State Park)では、バイソン、アンテロープ、シロイワヤギ、ビッグホーンシープなどを目撃できることもあります。

州内には居心地のよい町がたくさんあります。どこかで一休みしませんか。 サウスダコタ州(South Dakota)の地元の人が、なぜ旅人はウォール(Wall)のウォールドラッグ(Wall Drug)でドーナツを食べるべきだと主張するのか、その理由を探りましょう。 デッドウッド(Deadwood)で開拓者の足跡をたどり、ラピッドシティ(Rapid City)のショップでアメリカインディアン手作りの品物を物色し、スーフォールズ(Sioux Falls)のシックなブティックを訪れましょう。
