Devils Tower and the surrounding area are magnificent! As you plan your visit, you will definitely want to take a few days to discover this region. Start by crossing the South Dakota state line into the Northern Black Hills of Wyoming via I-90. A stop in the small town of Beulah at the Buffalo Jump Saloon will satisfy your appetite. At bit farther down the service road that runs parallel to I-90 you'll discover a natural historic site. The Vore Buffalo Jump is an impressive archaeological site dating back to 1500-1800 AD. Learn the history, science and Indian culture as you view various artifacts and the bison bones discovered there.

Back out on I-90, about 15 miles down the highway, pull off at Exit 189 and discover the historic town of Sundance. Named after Sundance Mountain where Indians performed their tribal rituals. The Sundance Kid was named after the town because that’s where he started his outlaw life. This is the real Sundancenot the “movie version”! Here you will find wide streets (better for turning around a horse and/or ox-drawn supply wagons), lots of history and friendly folks. Spend the night in any of the variety of lodging options, including cabins, a couple of nice little motels, a Best Western hotel, or you can camp. When you wake up, enjoy a tasty breakfast at one of the local diners.
