Tis’ the season to start planning your Summer travels, and two places less than a day’s drive away are showing up on a pair of National lists of small towns worthy of checking out.

Spearfish, South Dakota is number-11 on Thrillist’s rundown of the ’25 Best Small U.S. Cities to Spend the Weekend’.

The website recommends ‘wandering deep into Spearfish Canyon or to the top of Lookout Mountain’, and also checking out Spearfish Canyon Lodge. Foodwise, they suggest Rancher Tips at the Stadium Sports Grill with an IPA from Crow Peak, or a roadside Indian taco.
