It took 14 years to construct this mountain masterpiece and today, more than 20,000 tourists visit the South Dakota landmark daily. But before people were booking flights to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore, there were prairies, plantations and the peace-loving Sioux Nation (made up of the Dakota, Lakota and Nakota tribes). 

South Dakota has long been a land of outdoor beauty. First-time visitors booking flights to South Dakota might find it resembles one of America’s best loved novels and television shows, “Little House on the Prairie.” Laura Ingalls Wilder grew up in South Dakota in the late 19th century and her admired stories took place among the backdrop of the South Dakota landscape.

Visitors booking flights to South Dakota should not miss the museums and monuments that proudly display the native arts and culture inherit in the state.

When is the best time to fly to South Dakota?

Peak Season:

Summer is the peak season for visiting and when most South Dakota flights and hotels are booked. The attractions and outdoor activities are in full swing; visitors flock to the Badlands and to the Black Hills with Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial. Summer is also busy with Native American celebrations and rodeos.

The fishing season lasts year-round, with some exceptions.

Off Season:

If you want to see the attractions but not the crowds, book flights to South Dakota in the spring and fall. However, off-season traffic is on the rise, so make reservations in advance if you want cheap flights to South Dakota and reduced hotel rates.

The winters are generally too harsh for most of the outdoor attractions and activities.
