Sioux Falls, Mitchell, Kimball, Presho, Kadoka, Rapid City, Sturgis and Spearfish are some of the cities joined by Interstate 90 during its 412 mile trip through South Dakota. I-90 is the only east-west interstate in South Dakota and Interstate 29 is the only north-south one. Badlands National Park is located south of this highway east of Rapid City. Other attractions near I-90 include the Akta Lakota Museum, the U.S.S. Battleship South Dakota Memorial, Fort Kiowa, Fort Hale, Fort Defiance, West Bend State Recreation Area, Crazy Horse Memorial, Wind Cave National Park, Ice Cave, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, Jewel Cave National Monument and Spearfish Canyon.

Please share with other drivers your experiences as to which exits are best for single travelers or anyone for that matter. Reasons for the choice may include the safety of the surrounding area, the availability of good hotels and restaurants or proximity to the interstate. Please make sure to give the exit number or a description of the location. For example, when I discuss I-40, I would recommend Exit 145 in Oklahoma City. Many hotels and restaurants were located at this exit and I felt safe in the area. This exit was very convenient for easily continuing west without the hassle of dealing with early morning rush hour traffic.
