Sturgis Things to Do
Being an American you would think I would remember the name of this monument, but it has slipped my mind! We drove up to the monument and it was so very busy and packed we did not want to spend the time waiting in line, etc. so we just took a picture of the road. It's just some faces carved in rocks, cool and all but why pay for it? Shouldn't it be...more
We drove out to the Crazy Horse Monument. I wanted to pay and go in and see it up close, my husband didn't want to spend the money, after all, you can see it from the road! It's not even near completed anyways, so we just took a picture from the road, got back on our bike and drove away!more

While you are in Sturgis, don't miss the newest bar in town, Temporary Insanity. It is right on Main Street where all the best restaurants and shops are. They play good music, pour good drinks and it is partly owned by the very attractive, Keri. They also serve basic bar food like sandwiches and hamburgers. Pretty women, alcohol, and good music, what more do you need? Tell Keri Jim said, hello!
Dress Code: Biker gear is best; but casual is all you need.Related to:

Sturgis Tourist Traps
Sturgis during bike week is one big tourist trap as far as I'm concerned. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed going but it is just too darn crowded! The year we went there was an estimated 500,000 people who attended the Rally, imagine it! And they were all on bikes. You can't go for an "enjoyable" bike ride, every where is 'slow and go'. Trying to get through the town of Sturgis to get "out of town" is a freakin' nightmare and a pain in my back side. You literally sit in traffic for 30-45 minutes trying to go the 1 mile stretch of road out of town. Stoplights, traffic, just a mess.Related to:
Fort Mead is still used for National Guard training. In the picture you can see Officer Trainees doing some of their 2 week summer camp. As you drive around the post you can see many buildings that date from around the time of General Custer,although they have been changed to meet modern times. Some of the homes and barracks are still in use.more
The town of Sturgis grew from the camp followers and hookers following the soldiers who came to Fort Meade. It was the home of General Custer before he left for the Little Big Horn. Now it is the home to a large Veterans hospital. There is a nice museum showing the early history of of the fort and area. There is an admission charge. It takes...more
