Who Has Actually Been to South Dakota?

Illustration for article titled Who Has Actually Been to South Dakota?

South Dakota is the only state that President Obama hasn’t visited while in office. Have you been? Let us know.


On Friday, the President knocked Utah off his visiting list, which leaves South Dakota as the last, lonely state standing. South Dakota’s Secretary of Tourism Jim Hagen told Time, “I’m convinced he’s saving the best for last. When he can fit it into his busy schedule we’ll certainly be honored and happy to host him.”

Hm. Lot of unspoken sadness in that statement. Have you been to South Dakota? Seen the beauty of Mount Rushmore? Has anyone who doesn’t live there been there? Tell us.

My primary memory of South Dakota is shutting my finger in the car door in the parking lot of Mt. Rushmore, while on a family road trip.
