Established in 1999, the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site highlights the importance of the Cold War between United States and Soviet Union that stretched between 1947 and 1991. The site preserves certain war-related artifacts like a launch control center, a missile and such. The site signifies the importance of harmony and peace between nations and therefore, is a rich experience.
More than 800 bison graze in the Badlands National Park, which is made up of "244,000 acres of sharply eroded buttes, pinnacles and spires blended with the largest, protected mixed grass prairie in the United States." It also contains the world's richest Oligocene epoch fossil beds, 23 to 35 million years old. Be sure to check out the Ben Reifel Visitor Center. Visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, horse trails, camping, and the Cedar Pass Lodge while visiting.
