The Badlands tour begins in the morning with pickup at your Rapid City hotel. If you selected a standard, small-group tour of the North Unit Scenic Byway, you'll travel with a maximum of eight participants in a 14-passenger van. During the 1-hour drive to Badlands National Park, listen as your guide discusses the history of the Badlands and answers any questions you have.

At the entrance to the park, you'll stop for photos and views at the majestic Pinnacles Overlook. Then your guide drives the Loop, stopping at several more overlooks on your way to the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. Here, you'll stop for a picnic lunch and have a chance to visit the museum before continuing on the Loop to Cedar Pass. At Cedar Pass, you will have the option to walk the short Window and Door trails.

Exiting the park, you'll continue for a few miles to the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and Information Center. Be prepared to revisit 1962 and the Cold War, including routine 'duck and cover' drills.

The final stop will be at the Wall Drug Store, a unique tourist attraction that offers shopping for anything you may think of, including 5-cent coffee and excellent doughnuts. You will be returned to your hotel in the afternoon.
