The Heart of the Black Hills
Hill City, South Dakota is perfectly situated to be hub of your Black Hills vacation. The short drives will give you more time to enjoy Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial, the Mickelson Trail, and Custer State Park.
ELEVATE YOUR BLACK HILLS VACATION
Rich in history, small in size and big on hospitality and events, Hill City is a favorite destination of active families and couples, empty nesters and “bucket listers” alike! At 4,974’ elevation, you’re just minutes away from the jaw-dropping views from Black Elk peak (7,242’ elev.), or the spectacular beauty of the Cathedral Spires and the grandeur of Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial. Take winding roads through pine-scented Ponderosa forests, see the roaming buffalo in Custer State Park or experience the thrill of hiking, biking, horseback-riding, rock-climbing in the area known as “The Heart of the Hills.”
After a day of recreating, take in the warmth and culture offered by Hill City’s art galleries, gift and boutique shops, museums, antique shops and more that line our walkable-shopable little town….or indulge in some of the area’s finest restaurants, wineries and breweries. That’s your journey–elevated–in Hill City, The Heart of the Black Hills.
