Generally considered to be the oldest town established by European Americans in the Black Hills, Custer began as a mining town.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Wed): learn more about the world around you at Native American Educational and Cultural Center. Here are some ideas for day two: steep yourself in history at Peter Norbeck Visitors Center, then contemplate the waterfront views at Legion Lake, and then explore the activities along Stockade Lake.

To find where to stay, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Custer day trip tool .

Kansas City to Custer is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of bus, flight, and taxi. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and car; or drive. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 1 hour.
