On our way to Badlands, crossing South Dakota on Interstate 90, we decided to stop at 1880 Town for a quick picnic. Instead, we spent a lot more time discovering this town with his houses from the 1880 to 1920 era.

When you walk along Main Street, it is like going back in time. You walk along and inside Western style buildings and see a lot of props from that time. To make it even more fun and authentic, you can even rent costumes, which is especially great for kids.

It is a great place to stretch your legs and take some very nice pictures. I would really recommend it if you are in the neighborhood.
