  1. Ooh, I love ghost towns and I see a lot on your list! The concrete outline of USS SD is intriguing....

  2. wall drug donuts? Dough Traders pizza? Crazy Horse Memorial? what odd names but somehow they sound good even though I have no idea what they're about. sleeping under the stars might be on my list except I really do not like sleeping outside.

    hope you and your family have fun doing these things.

    have a lovely day.

    p.s., thanks for your visit to my blog.

  3. We have checked some of these off already and were not disappointed. I would add a cave to the list. We toured Wind cave and enjoyed it.

    1. I did have Wind Cave on the list and then I remembered my oldest son really dislikes caves. I even asked him again to make sure. So I scratched that one off. Maybe another time we will go because I do like caves.

  4. There's a cowboy museum along I-90 that they advertise the heck out of (or at least there was one 30-some years ago), heading west from Sioux Falls.

    Wall Drug has.... DONUTS?

  5. Why only kinda for Mount Rushmore? From the other side of the world, Ballarat in Victoria, Australia, Mount Rushmore is very famous. I love Hitchcock and Mount Rushmore features in North by North West. Not sure how old your children are but maybe they would enjoy watching in preparation for the trip.
