South Dakota’s natural beauty and unusual geological features, plus its Wild West history and Native American presence, combine to offer families, especially city dwellers, an interesting landscape for a family vacation. The Sioux Nation, despite being driven from the Black Hills after the discovery of gold in the area in 1874, still maintains a sizable presence in South Dakota. More than 70,000 Native Americans, most of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota tribes of the Sioux Nation, live within the state’s boundaries, both on and off reservations. This eTrail is one complete vacation written with families in mind. It’s loaded with exciting things to do, family-friendly places to lodge and dine, recommended side trips, local sources of information, and detailed travel directions.
