USA - Great Plains (Chapter)
This is the Great Plains chapter from Lonely Planet’s USA guidebook.
To best appreciate this vast and underappreciated region in the heart of the US, you need to split the name. The first word, ‘great,’ is easy. Great food, great scenery, great tornadoes, great people all apply. The problem is with ‘plains.’ ‘Humdrum’ and ‘flat’ are two words that come to mind. Neither applies. Amid the endless horizons and raw natural drama are many surprises.
- Immerse yourself in the blues rhythms of one of America’s great old cities: St Louis
- Go from mountain highs in the Black Hills to valley lows in Badlands National Park
- restaurants & accommodation
- Gape at the wildly striated, otherworldly landscapes of Theodore Roosevelt National Park
