Black Hills/Badlands in early May?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to South Dakota in early May. He is worried that the weather may not be nice enough and that there won't be enough to do in the area because it's not the peak season for the area.

For those of you who've traveled during non-peak times in this area, do you think this time period is a poor choice? I am dying to see the Badlands, and we'd like to vacation sooner, rather than later. We're both interested in history and the outdoors and don't have any children. I'd rather avoid crowds for the most part, and I'm normally content to take things at a slower pace, rather than try to cram too much into a short period of time.

We live in Wisconsin and would be driving to South Dakota. We most likely plan to try to drive most of the way to the Badlands in one day and then meander around the area for the remainder of the week. We'll be leaving on a Saturday and leaving early the next Sunday morning.

For those who've experienced this area, what do you consider the "must sees" and what are the things we can safely pass up?

Thanks!
