Kid Tested, Mother Approved – What to See & Do with Kids in the Black Hills

With its mix of authentically awe-inspiring landscapes, concentration of parks and hundreds – literally hundreds – of attractions, the Black Hills has served as an unforgettable vacation destination for generations of families.

So if you’re traveling with the brood, here’s what to do with kids in the Black Hills and Badlands Region. It’s a four-day, kid-tested-mother-approved itinerary for traveling with children. It’s the average length of a BH vacation (although we suggest more).

One thing missing from this extensive list are the Badlands and Wall area. They are a favorite of my family, and if you’re traveling from the east like most Black Hills visitors are, make sure to hit the park and Wall Drug on your way in. Stop at the overlooks, take a short trail and at Wall Drug, ride the Jackalope.

This list jam packs the action in but with traveling with kids, it is all subject to change. Highlight one or two stops a day and know that you can always come back. You certainly wouldn’t be alone and while the attractions may change, the Black Hills experience will be here for more generations to come
