There are already good reasons to visit South Dakota – Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Custer State Park for some the biggest herds of buffalo and the stunning Crazy Horse Memorial.
Bui while you are here there is a wealth of American art to tempt you to stay longer. This varies from the traditional art museums but with the emphasis on American artists such as Terry Redlin, Harvey Dunn and Marghab Linens.

Native American art is well represented at Soiux Falls in the Prairie Star Gallery, Brooking’s South Dakota Art Museum and of course at the Crazy Horse Memorial which includes the Indian Museum of North America.

Nor is all of the art indoors. Souix City exhibits outdoor sculptures all over the City for the public to vote on in different catagories. As I drove in to Souix City this spring, I was surprised to see a family of larger than life gorillas waving at me from the side of the road! Rapid City is known as the City of Presidents as it has bronze statues of every American President on street corners in the downtown area. So if you ever wanted to have a word with your favourite President, all you have to do is find him.

Finally in Mitchell there is the only Corn Palace in the world. Each year a new theme is selected and a local artist is chosen to depict the giant scenes inside and outside the building in fresh ears of corn. Unique

All these attractions mean that this State is well worth taking time to explore.
