Join us on this action packed, fun-filled and historical adventure to the Wild West, featuring six nights at one hotel in Rapid City, South Dakota. The highlights are numerous, starting with the incredible Mount Rushmore National Memorial that is centered around a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills in Keystone, SD. Mount Rushmore was selected because it has the advantage of facing southeast for maximum sun exposure. Here see the awesome sculptures of Washington, Jefferson,
Roosevelt and Lincoln. Then visit Crazy Horse Memorial, still in progress, a giant mountainside sculpture of the famous Indian Chief astride his pony. Custer State Park is famous as a wildlife preserve that features a herd of 1,500 free roaming buffalo. You will experience a thrilling Buffalo Jeep Safari in search of some of the herd.

Visit Devil’s Tower National Monument in Wyoming and historic Deadwood, S.D., the 1876
rough-and-tumble gold camp and gambling town where Wild West legends Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane made history. Enjoy a visit to The Mammoth Site, a working paleontological site and museum containing the largest concentration of Columbian and Woolly mammoths ever found in their primary context (where they died). Explore Badlands National Park, containing spectacular examples of weathering, erosion, fantastic ridges, cliffs and canyons of variegated color.

Enjoy a trip back in time on an authentic narrow-gauge railroad dating back to the Black
Hills Gold Rush. The Journey Museum traces the geology of the Black Hills and tells the
story of the people who inhabited these lands. Enjoy dinner at the K-Bar S Ranch, which is
nestled in the beautiful Black Hills. Later, we will experience Mt. Rushmore at night to see
this American treasure illuminated in a whole new light to conclude your legendary tour.
