My husband and I are planning a trip to the Black Hills in late April and early May for about 7 days. We plan to fly into Rapid City and will arrive about 3:30pm and rent a car. The first night we plan to stay at either Wall or the cabins in Badlands NP.
The second day, we are touring the Badlands and then driving to the Black Hills area.
My question is where should we stay to visit Mt Rushmore, Custer SP, caves in the area, etc? I plan on 3 days in this area and then drive to Deadwood for the final 3 days to do some gambling and tour the area around Deadwood.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
