Badlands National Park is one that I had neither heard much about nor had at the top of any bucket list. After taking a full day to explore this park, I'm glad to say that the Badlands is well worth the trip out to explore. The park is located in South Dakota which I believe is a rather underrated state. Since we had traveled up from Florida and through endless states of corn fields, we were happy to see scenery changes, especially ones as out-of-this-world as the Badlands. You can absolutely spend more than one day exploring this park but if you have only 24 hours in the area, here's an itinerary to follow so you can make the most of you time here!
