I'll be in Gillette Wyoming for Antelope.


I'll visit Mt Rushmore.
What else is in that area for tourist attractions ?
Within a 5 hr distance of Gillette.

Little Big Horn battlefield in SE Montana is worth a visit.

Definitely see Devils Tower. Pictures can't begin to do it justice. Pretty much the same for Mt. Rushmore.

Deadwood, SD, Spearfish, SD and the Black Hills area in general is worth spending time in.

As Flags mentioned, the entire black hills area is worth seeing and spending time in. Custer Park, Rushmore, Crazyhorse, Horsethief Lake, Sylvan Lake, Deadwood, Spearfish, Sturgis, All of this stuff is worth spending time in if you have it.

Badlands NP, Boulder Canyon between Sturgis and Deadwood,

Devils tower is a must see IMO.

Just depends how much time you have. If You only had a day or two, I'd hit Devils tower, then head towards the black hills and see Rushmore and drive highway 385 through the black hills.

Good luck on your hunt.

x2 everything he said. I've done all of what was mentioned and its well worth the time. Some of them I've seem more than once! To get an idea how big Devils Tower really is, do the hike around it. If anyone is reppelling off it, then you'll see just how big it is.

Definitely check out Devil's Tower.

You can actually climb to the top relatively easy on some routes... which consider hire a guide and doing this!
