Amid this wealth of attractions, guests will find Black Hills Caverns, Buzzard's Roost, and Shanks Quarry Motorized Trailhead right by the site. Meanwhile, they will also find a panoply of restaurants, shops, museums, and more at nearby Rapid City. Points of interest include the Museum of Geology, the Journey Museum and Learning Center, Reptile Gardens, Dinosaur Park, the South Dakota Air and Space Museum, and the Dahl Arts Center.
