Driving from Black Hills to Fort Riley KS

Jump to last reply

We have to go to Fort Riley Kansas for 3-4 days the 2nd week of Fed. We'll be driving straight through from the Black Hills of SD.

Google maps suggests the route of all interstates I90 east to I29 south to I80 west. We drive I90 across SD a few times a year and, depending on the weather, I'd like to take a different route either going to, coming back or both.

We're familiar with hwy 79 south from Rapid City to Chadron NE and google gave me a route that drops S to go west on I80, then south on hwy 81. That route is about 100 miles shorter than interstate, but through towns, so could be slower. Any other suggestions?

We won't be staying on Fort Riley, I've checked for hotels, mostly chains? Any recommendations? Restaurants? Things to do in the area off Fort Riley?
