First thing I thought of was The Badlands, it's probably right on the way. Mt. Rushmore, from what I remember, is a bit off the path and may not hold the same value to non-Americans. Still it's a very historic spot.

This group tends to recommend outdoor stuff, as you can see. But that's what you will get in that section of the country. Good idea to go to Vegas last because you will leave broke. ;)

Hi, I know this is a slightly late post but I'm looking at doing something similar and was wondering how you're going to travel (are you planning on buying a cheap car/renting) as from what I've seen renting would be way too expensive for the distance/length of time I plan to travel, and I wasnt sure how easy it would be to buy
Thanks! :D

I got a great offer from my renting company, so i am gonna rent from alamo this time. and i dont have to think about the car breaking down, becouse the will get a new one for me at the spot, and i dont have to think about selling it either.we are renting 2 SUVs.

Its easy to buy a car there, but i am not so sure its easy to sell it again.. and i guess i save a some money if u manage to sell the car for the same amount you bought it for.

sorry for late response
