    Follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark to Knife Village, a reconstructed Mandan village. This is where their expedition spent its first winter as the party searched for the waterway that would lead to the Pacific. As you walk through the village you will learn about the importance of this winter layover and the culture of the people who meant so much to the expedition. Tonight, the history of the expansion comes alive at the Medora Musical. This pageant has been capturing the essence of the west for many decades. Rough Rider Hotel – 2 nights (FB,L,D)

  • Day 4

    Join Cowboy Lyle as he spins tales and weaves the history of the west into your visit to Theodore Roosevelt National Park this morning. Keep your eyes open for buffalo and wild horses. And yes, you are apt to fall in love with the little prairie dogs too… Merriweather Lewis certainly did. This afternoon spend time in Medora, celebrating the lives or TR and the many others who fell in love with and were ultimately shaped by the West. Visit Chateau de Mores for an example of the “good life” in the West. (L)

  • Day 5

    A day of transition as you move from the grasslands of western North Dakota into the Black Hills of South Dakota.

  • Day 6-7

    The Black Hills were sacred mountains to the Lakota Sioux. Today they are home to monumental tributes to both the leaders of the United States and the Sioux nation. Mt. Rushmore celebrates our birth, growth and tribulations of a young country. Crazy Horse, a monument still in the making, pays homage to the leader of the Sioux. Both monuments are breathtaking and awe-inspiring. At Custer State Park, thrill to the wildlife that calls these hills home as you travel across the rolling hills by jeep. Palmer Gulch Lodge – 2 nights (2B,L)

  • Day 8

    There is one more drive through the hills of South Dakota as we make our way to Rapid City, the city of presidents. A brief stop to explore its many statues and then it is off to the airport. May you return home with a greater appreciation of the history and culture of the Dakotas. (B)
