Discover the spirit of the Old West on this journey into the land that inspired thousands to leave their comfortable lives on the developed east coast, and pursue manifest destiny out west. The iconic landscapes, from grassy plains dotted with buffalo, to gold-rich mountains that served as the home base to towns like Deadwood and Homestake, is where life was made of dreams of striking it rich and avoiding the danger of lawlessness. Explore Custer National Park and its monuments to the battle at Little Big Horn and take some time to feel awe at the sheer scope and scale of Mount Rushmore. This is not a journey into the past, but rather a showcase of the impact the past has had on the present, and the enduring legacy of America’s Wild West.
