Itinerary

Day 1-2 - UK – Denver

Your USA holiday starts with a flight from the UK to Denver. Upon arrival collect your hire car for your short drive to your hotel. Denver the 'Mile-High-City' lies east of the Rocky Mountains.

Day 3 - Denver - Black Hills/Mt. Rushmore Area (370 miles)

Day 4 - Black Hills Sightseeing

The Black Hills received their name because of their dark appearance from a distance. The Black Hills are rich in Native American History with civilisations dating back to at least 700BC.

Day 5 - Black Hills - Sheridan (220 miles) 

Sheridan sits on the edge of the Bighorn Mountains, once the heart of Indian Country where many Indian Battles were though. On the way to Sheridan take the time to detour to the town of Deadwood, a town still in the turn of the century style.
