St Louis to Mt Rushmore

Jump to last reply

We are Australian and will be in the US in September for a wedding. We plan to fly to St Louis from NYC and will hire a car there and set off on a road trip to eventually reach Seattle.

My question itoday regards the start of the journey. We thought we would drive to Kansas City on first day then on to Sioux Falls.

Obviously we would like to go to Badlands National Park, Devil's Monument and Mt. Rushmore.

I read that Hill City is a nice place to stay in rather than Rapid City. Would it make sense to stay there and visit Badlands from there (I know it is tracking back) and then Mt Rushmore or should we stay closer to Badlands and then go to Hill City?
How long will all this take?

This is only the first part of the journey. Yellowstone is also on the itinerary but I have yet to research that part of the country!

Thank you to anyone who replies - I have had such great feedback for previous trips to the States, Europe and Africa, that this is my first and best resource.
