Tourism in the Black Hills not slowing down this fall


The summer tourism season may be ending, but for Black Hills attractions that doesn't mean business stops.  

With the end to Labor Day weekend, tourist venues are already starting to put more energy toward the fall season.

The 1880 Train Ride is Hill City has special rides throughout September and October.

Meg Warder, President of the Black Hills Central Railroad also says they will partner with the Prairie Berry Winery on September 14th and 21st.

"You know we do a lot of really cool events here at the train in the fall," said Warder. "We have people from all over the world, many countries every year, every state comes and visits us every year." 

The Buffalo Roundup in Custer State Park is a major draw the last Friday in September.

And at the Crazy Horse memorial in Custer County, hikers will have a chance to do the first ever Volksmarch up to the arm of the sculpture the last weekend in September.

Pat Dobbs, media relations for Crazy Horse says fall is almost seamless to the summer months.

"Somewhere along the line it was referred to as the 'Off Season,'" said Dobbs. "I haven't seen off, I don't think any tourist operation in the Black Hills has seen off yet and we're very grateful for that.
