Visit Great Plains with Mighway

Rent an RV in Great Plains


The Great Plains is the broad expanse of flat land (a plain), much of it covered in prairie, steppe and grassland, that lies west of the Mississippi River tallgrass prairie states and east of the Rocky Mountains in the United States and Canada. This area covers the entirety of the state of Kansas and parts of the states of Colorado, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming, Minnesota, Iowa and the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan. The region is known for supporting extensive cattle ranching and dry farming. The Canadian portion of the Plains is known as the Prairies. Some geographers include some territory of northern Mexico in the Plains, but many stop at the Rio Grande.

Places to Visit near Great Plains


Mount Rushmore

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres and is 5,725 feet above sea level. South Dakota historian Doane Robinson is credited with conceiving the idea of carving the likenesses of famous people into the Black Hills region of South Dakota in order to promote tourism in the region.  Robinson's initial idea was to sculpt the Needles; however, Gutzon Borglum rejected the Needles site because of the poor quality of the granite and strong opposition from environmentalists and Native American groups. They settled on the Mount Rushmore location, which also has the advantage of facing southeast for maximum sun exposure. Robinson wanted it to feature western heroes like Lewis and Clark, Red Cloud and Buffalo Bill Cody but Borglum decided the sculpture should have a more national focus, and chose the four presidents whose likenesses would be carved into the mountain. After securing federal funding, construction on the memorial began in 1927, and the presidents' faces were completed between 1934 and 1939. Upon Gutzon Borglum's death in March 1941, his son Lincoln Borglum took over construction. Although the initial concept called for each president to be depicted from head to waist, lack of funding forced construction to end in late October 1941. The U.S. National Park Service took control of the memorial in 1933, while it was still under construction, and has managed the memorial to the present day. It attracts nearly three million people annually. National Treasure 2 might have been a complete fabrication of American history, but Nicolas Cage was right about one thing: there's a secret room hidden away in Keystone, South Dakota's Mount Rushmore.. and it's filled with awesome stuff! 

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum

The Oklahoma City National Memorial is comprised of two distinct components that go hand in hand in educating about the senselessness of terrorism and violence. The Outdoor Symbolic Memorial is a beautiful 3.3 acre site in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. The Memorial has transformed the original site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and also encompasses what once was Fifth Street, the former Journal Record Newspaper Building and five other parcels of land that were located just to the north of the bombed building. Today, you will greeted by the Gates of Time, and learn the story through symbolic elements including a Field of Empty Chairs, A Reflecting Pool, the Survivor Tree, the Rescuers’ Orchard, the Survivor Wall, a Children’s Area and the fence that originally protected the crime scene which even today gathers objects of remembrance and hope. The Memorial Museum is a 50,000 square foot, highly interactive Museum which tells the story of what happened on that beautiful spring morning in the capitol city of Oklahoma. You will walk through that morning and see the sights and hear the sounds of what the people in Oklahoma City and Oklahoma have worked to overcome. You will hear the sound of the bomb, hear from the investigators, the rescuers, survivors and from family members who lost loved ones. You will experience the Lessons Learned from the Oklahoma City bombing and leave knowing that the world holds far more good than bad. The Museum is a tribute that in no way diminishes the tragedy, but rather offers an inspiring contrast between the brutality of the evil and the tenderness of the response.

Bear Country U.S.A

Very few people have had a full-grown black bear look in the window of their family car, or if they have, it was not by choice. Even fewer have seen a reindeer or a elk up close. However, many people are getting experiences like these at Bear Country U.S.A. in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Nestled over 250 acres amidst towering pines and along rolling meadows just eight miles south of Rapid City, Bear Country U.S.A. offers visitors intimate views of most North American mammals. Visitors take a leisurely three-mile drive through several enclosures and encounter black bear, elk, reindeer, deer, cougars, bobcats, rocky mountain goats, bighorn sheep, dall sheep and buffalo. At this "the home of the largest collection of privately owned black bear in the world", Bear Country U.S.A. guests are guaranteed to see more than they bargained for. From the comfort of their own car, visitors watch as these clowns of nature frolic in a pool, climb trees and amble across the road in front of their vehicle.
