I'm planning my first trip to South Dakota with my wife and our 2 1/2 year old son. Just have some questions on our lodging and itinerary. We are planning a 4 or 5 day trip in late June and are driving from Lincoln, NE. I know things book up early so I want to get everything figured out ASAP.
First thing I'm wondering about are cabins. We would love to stay in an affordable cabin that has nice scenery and possibly a playground or pool for my son. Any thoughts on where to go? It looked like Hill City had a lot of options but I wasn't sure.
As far as our itinerary we would love to do things my son will enjoy. He will be 3 when we go on this trip. We definitely want to see Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, Reptile Gardens, Wildlife Loop, the 1880 train ride, and go horseback riding. Anything else we should see and do? Are there any of these things we should plan for more time for than others, driving included?
Also had a question about horseback riding. Will my son be able to ride a horse with me or my wife if he is 3? What are some of the best horseback riding spots?
I really appreciate any tips and advice you guys have! Thank you so much!!!
