Travel Itineraries

Scratch That Off Your Bucket List

Live on the wild side during your stay in the monumental and epic Black Hills of South Dakota! Keystone is home to a variety of adventures that will let you cross some exciting expeditions off of your bucket list.

Helicopter Tour

Start your day off with one of several flightseeing packages at Rushmore Helicopters. Get a birds-eye view of Mount Rushmore & Crazy Horse Memorial. The Black Hills are at their most stunning in the early morning light.

Zipline Tour

Next, it is on to Rushmore Tramway Adventures to experience the thrill of a lifetime! Their Pinnacle Zipline Tour is 2 hours in length and reaches heights of 300-400’ above the canopy. It is the only zipline in the Black Hills with views of Mount Rushmore.

Lunch at Mountain Top Grille

After the tour, head back up to the top for a relaxing lunch among the flowers, waterfalls, and mica strewed paths at the beautiful Mountain Top Grille.

Crazy Horse Memorial

After your meal, continue on US-16E for about five miles to Crazy Horse Memorial. No bucket list is complete without a visit to this stunning monument that depicts the Oglala Lakota leader Crazy Horse riding his horse and pointing out into the Black Hills “where his dead lay buried”.  Bus rides are even available so you can get up close and personal with the massive carving. Be sure to check out their gift shop, which features Native American art and other handmade items that will make perfect souvenirs to take home.

Hike Black Elk Peak

After the tour, head back up to the top for a relaxing lunch among the flowers, waterfalls, and mica strewed paths at the beautiful Mountain Top Grille.

Dining at Boss Pizza and Chicken

The Black Hills were founded by prospectors looking for gold, and so it’s only fitting that we have our own unique design of gold jewelry. Henri LeBeau, a Frenchman who came to the Black Hills in the gold rush, was the original designer of Black Hills Gold. Legend has it that he was lost in the woods, where he eventually fell asleep and dreamt of brooks and vineyards in France. Upon his return to town he gave up prospecting in favor of jewelry making. Today, Black Hills Gold is known for its distinctive grape and leaf design with green and rose colored accents inspired by LeBeau’s dream.
