De Smet

You probably don’t know De Smet, South Dakota, but you know its most famous resident: Laura Ingalls Wilder. The destination boasts two Ingalls family homes and the Ingalls Homestead, plus more sites dating back to the 1800s.

In Deadwood, it’s all about the wild, wild West. Stop into Mount Moriah Cemetery to glimpse the final resting place of notable figures like Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Need a spot to stay? Book a room at Silverado Franklin, which dates back to 1903 and counts Theodore Roosevelt among its famous guests.
