Tips for Your Travel Plans

If you're planning to visit Rapid City, SD to see Mount Rushmore you may want to go before the conference.  Starting August 2nd, the Sturgis Motorcyle Rally begins in nearby Sturgis, SD where thousands of bikers from across the US gather with motorcycles. It will be very difficult to get hotel accommodations and may be a bit overwhelming! Or not, if you like motorcycles!
