    Devils Tower Discoveries

Devils Tower and the surrounding area are magnificent! As you plan your visit, you will definitely want to take a few days to discover this region. Start by crossing the South Dakota state line into the Northern Black Hills of Wyoming via I-90. A stop in the small town of Beulah at the Buffalo Jump Saloon will satisfy your appetite. Travel just a few short miles down the road and stop at the Vore Buffalo Jump—one of North America's most important and spectacular archeological sites. See the excavation and learn the history, science, and culture of North American Plains Indians.

Back out on I-90, about 15 miles down the highway, pull off at Exit 189 and discover the historic town of Sundance. Named after Sundance Mountain where Indians performed their tribal rituals. The Sundance Kid was named after the town because that’s where he started his outlaw life. This is the real Sundancenot the “movie version”! Here you will find wide streets (better for turning around horse and ox drawn supply wagons), lots of history and friendly folks. Spend the night in any of the variety of lodging options, including Bearlodge Mountain Resort, a couple of nice little motels, a Best Western hotel, or you can camp. When you wake up, enjoy a tasty breakfast at one of the local diners.
