Overview

Your round-trip ticket to the wildest, wackiest, most outrageous people, places, and things the Mount Rushmore State has to offer!


Meet the ghost hotel boss who gets agitated when the staff isn't kept busy; the Guinness Book of World Records performer who hasn't missed a gig in fifty years; and a man who predicts the weather with onions.


Attend festivals where you can test your arm at throwing buffalo chips; celebrate a man thought to be inspiration for The Wizard of Oz; or wrestle in a huge pit of mashed potatoes.


Visit the culinary epicenter of chislic; the biggest maker of jackalope head mounts; or the world’s most famous pharmacy, made so by billboards placed all over the world.


Whether you're a born-and-raised South Dakotan or a recent transplant, author Bernie Hunhoff will have you laughing out loud as he introduces you to the neighbors you never knew you had and take you to places you never knew existed—right in your own backyard.
