What would life in South Dakota be without vacation time? This episode explores how leisure and travel have been entwined with the history of South Dakota from the earliest times. Even in the 1830s visitors "vacationed" here to see our natural wonders. Tourism is the second largest industry in our state. From Mount Rushmore National Memorial to the great lakes on the Missouri, from the lower James River Valley to the lake country of Sisseton, South Dakota is a vacation wonderland. We look at the history of tourism and how it has grown and why.
