Baby boomers with an adventurous spirit can make plans for the rugged and scenic state of South Dakota. Specifically, the Badlands National Park offers guests an array of incredible wonders to explore through a wealth of outdoor activities. The history and tradition throughout this region alone is worth the trip, which may make for one unforgettable journey.
Upon arrival to the park, guests may wish to gather seasonal and current information about the various attractions at the White River Visitor’s Center, reports USA Today. This is also a good place to point out before wandering through the various trails and roadways, so if anyone gets lost they will know where to return.
The national park is absolutely massive, boasting more than 244,000 acres throughout the state. Due to the great expanse of landscapes, travelers can choose a few highlights to view while on their trip. Some of the best areas to explore include the rock formations at Sheep Mountain Table and the forests in the Black Hills.
According to Fodor’s, when it is time to feed a hearty appetite, the Western Art Gallery is the place to go. This establishment has more than 200 original oil paintings on display and can also serve a tasty buffalo burger or homemade ice cream.
