Thank You to the City and Businesses of Keystone

Thank you to everyone who hosted us in Keystone! As lovers of the Black Hills and Badlands at BH&B, we go out and explore a lot in the area on our own; but there are often things we miss or don't have the available time or resources to experience for ourselves. We rely on our members and on trips like this one to build our collective knowledge of the region. Staff outings and FAM tours are a chance to learn more about everything there is to see so we can can tell our visitors about the attractions and activities we enjoy in each community. 

Some of the members we stopped and said hello to were The National Presidential Wax Museum, Big Thunder Family Bar & Grill and Under Canvas. There was so much we hadn't seen before—we relished the opportunity and time to experience it ourselves.

There was also an opportunity for us to spend time on the tramway and slides at Rushmore Tramway Adventures before we joined them in the ribbon cutting and grand opening of their Summer Tubing Hill. After that, it was lift off with Black Hills Aerial Adventures, where we saw the Black Hills from the sky. 

We took a ride with Scootours to see the Black Hills Glass Blowers hard at work creating beautiful art and cooled off later with coffee and gelato at Grapes and Grinds. As citrus fans, we loved the grapefruit gelato and the coffee was spectacular. We are eager to get back to try their unicorn dreams gelato next time.

Of course, no trip to Keystone is complete without a tour down the boardwalk to check out the shops and watch the traffic pass by. We had a terrific lunch at Ruby House and bought a few mementos from Keystone Mercantile afterwards. Our visit rounded out with a couple of trips on Rush Mountain Adventure Park's Rush Mountain Coaster, and a good summer tan on everyone. 

Thank you again to all of our wonderful members for helping us explore the area. We had a wonderful time and are very grateful to have become more familiar with what there is to see and do in Monumental Keystone
