South Dakota Road Trip Itinerary

October 28, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I just completed my road trip to South Dakota (from Chicago). It was a 12 day journey that covered just under 3,000 miles.

This was the first trip that I took with an all electric vehicle. I purchased a Tesla just weeks before the trip. The Tesla performed well throughout the road trip...and driving an electric car on a long road trip can be the subject of another article.

Here was my itinerary for this trip:

Day 1:  Omaha, NE (commuting day)

Day 2:  North Platte, NE (Nebraska State Capitol, Pioneer Village)

Day 3:  Cheyenne, WY (Buffalo Bill's Ranch, Wyoming State Capitol)

Day 4:  Scottsbluff, NE (Scotts Bluff, Carhenge, Chimney Rock)

Day 5:  Deadwood, SD (Fort Laramie, Register Cliff, Deadwood)

Day 6:  Deadwood, SD (Deadwood historic Main Street, Spearfish Canyon)

Day 7:  Rapid City, SD (Bear Country, Art Alley)

Day 8:  Wall, SD (Badlands National Park)

Day 9:  Wall, SD (Badlands National Park, Minuteman Missile National Historic Site)

Day 10: Pierre, SD (Badlands National Park, South Dakota State Capitol)

Day 11: Sioux City, IA (Native American National Scenic Byway, Yankton downtown)

Day 12: Orland Park, IL (commuting day)
