Black Hills, South Dakota


The Black Hills are a far-flung spot for most Americans, but they still attract millions of visitors each year thanks to a combination of natural beauty and astonishing feats of man-made engineering. Most famous is Mount Rushmore, an enormous granite carving of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. The region also contains the Crazy Horse Memorial, which is the largest sculpture in the world, and the imposing Devil's Tower mountain, just across the border in Wyoming.
