Roadside Attractions in South Dakota

When it comes to classic roadside attractions, South Dakota boasts some of the best, including Wall Drug and the World’s Only Corn Palace. Nostalgic, kitschy and always memorable, our roadside stops are one-of-a-kind experiences definitely worth a snapshot (or twelve) for those social media vacation moments.

Porter Sculpture Park


The sight of an enormous bull’s head rising out of the prairie beside Interstate 90 will make you want to pull off and check out Porter Sculpture Park. Quirky and fanciful metal creations from South Dakota sculptor Wayne Porter are scattered along a grassy walking path. The park is open late May through early September.


Explore Aberdeen’s Storybook land, where the admission is $0 for unlimited family fun. Visitors can also see characters and settings from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the park’s Land of Oz. A castle in the center of the park hosts events and a train ride circles the area. Storybook Land is open mid-April through mid-October, with full services available late May through early September. Adjacent Wylie Park offers camping, swimming, bumper boats, mini-golf and go karts.
