South Dakota is located in the Great Plains, in the Midwestern region of the United States. Summers are hot, while winters are very cold with high winds. The land is home to several Plains Indian tribes, including Dakota, Lakota and Nakota - speaking people of the Great Sioux Nation. The state is famous for Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Millions of visitors come to see sculptures of four former US Presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Other points of interest include Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park and Badlands National Park to name a few.

Food

Another Championship football team visit White House on Monday. And President Donald Trump once again had a buffet of fast food waiting for his guests. Trump welcomed Football Championship Subdivision champion North Dakota State Bison to the White House on Monday. And, according to the pool report, he serves them lunchtime spread of Big - Macs, Chick - fil - chicken sandwiches and french fries, among other fast - food items. Trump served a similar meal to the Clemson Tigers when they visited the White House in January. According to the pool report, Trump told Bison that he could ve served them meal prepared by chefs, but I know you people. Several players laugh, according to the pool report. Trump said in January that he personally paid for Clemson's White House feast because its visit came in the middle of a partial government shutdown, with press secretary Sarah Sanders explaining in a statement that much of the residence staff at the White House is on furlough. About 150 members of North Dakota State's Football program, including players and coaches, were expected to attend Monday's event, in addition to Senators Kevin Cramer and John Hoeven. Trump has now hosted six football teams at the White House since taking office in 2016, in addition to MLB's Houston Astros and NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins. Other Championship teams, however, have either declined to visit the White House or did not received invitation from the President. Trump has yet to honor the Championship basketball team at the White House. Contact Tom Schad at tschad usatoday. Com or on Twitter Tom_Schad.

Local Festivals

The cancellation of dozens of local events is one more challenge added to an already difficult year for tourism in South Dakota, said Julie Schmitz Jensen, CEO of Visit Rapid City. Jensen says visitors from out of town may not come to Black Hills or other regions of South Dakota solely because there are local events taking place, but that once they arrive, they are likely to attend events and spend money on food, drink and merchandise. Those festivals, fairs and events are all very, very important to the whole picture of what makes Rapid City a great place to come visit, Jensen say. They make our city a vibrant city. Visit Rapid City mainly focuses its marketing efforts on people from outside South Dakota because money they spend is seen as new revenue being pumped into the state and local economy. Since the COVID - 19 pandemic, group has shifted its focus away from targeting people who have to fly to South Dakota and instead has heightened efforts to lure those who are in driving markets, or places that are within a six to eight hour drive from Hills. Bread and butter for US are people from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Colorado; those are people bringing money from outside our state and leaving it here, Jensen say. While tourism spending overall is likely to be off significantly in 2020, Jensen says South Dakota communities will remain attractive to visitors who are feeling cooped up and want to visit places where most activities are outside and safer from coronavirus. Gas prices are at an all - time low, and we have great outdoors, so you can socially distance here and feel safe, she say. Hagen said State is urging all tourism and event providers to place high priority on following guidance from CDC to maintain social - distancing guidelines and keep group size as low as possible to prevent spread of COVID - 19. If we do provide a safe environment when they get here, we wo have any tourism, Hagen say. Our industry is taking this very, very seriously and putting in place those protocols. Hagen said he is concerned that negative impacts of the virus on tourism in South Dakota and beyond may linger for a few years, making it likely some people may not return to travelling anytime soon. He said the US travel industry has lost $600 billion so far due to the pandemic. I dont think it is something that will resolve itself in one season; were going to be feeling the effects of this virus for couple of years or more. However, Hagen says local event cancellations may make people more appreciative of celebrations when they return, and he predicts that some events may come back stronger in 2021 as a result. The majority of those cancelling this year are definitely planning for next year, and some have already announced those 2021 dates, so that is encouraging, he say.
