Top 10 Things To Do At Sturgis

Sturgis, South Dakota sits close to a wealth of national parks and monuments. Within an easy day’s ride, riders can venture to (in alphabetical order): Badlands National Park, Crazy Horse Memorial (still under construction), Custer State Park, Devil’s Tower National Monument, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Those are just the big names. Smaller locations like the Needles Highway near Custer are just as inspiring. While the sights are close enough together that a motivated rider could visit several in a single day, the locations themselves are worth more than just a quick visit. At the very least, you need to take the mile hike around Devil’s Tower to really appreciate its scale.
