Laid-back living in the scenic Black Hills

Nestled between the Black Hills National Forest and the High Plains in southwest South Dakota, Spearfish is the epitome of relaxed small town living. Settled in 1876 after the gold rush, the town's mining heritage is still preserved today, particularly in the historic buildings that line picturesque Main Street. With plenty of outdoor activities in the area, especially in nearby Spearhead Canyon, there's no shortage of ways to get your fresh air fix. A Spearfish vacation rental offers something for everyone, from family-friendly activities, to fun for the adults-only crowd at the casinos.

Things to do

There's gold in them there hills

Spearfish's mining history is on full display at the Broken Boot Gold Mine and the High Plains Western Heritage Center. For more history, head to the D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery, dating from 1896, the Vore Buffalo Jump historic site, or picture-perfect downtown Deadwood, where you'll feel like you stepped back in time to the late 1800s. Spearfish Canyon and Bridal Veil Falls are also must-sees. Culture Vultures will enjoy the rotating exhibits, performances, and concerts at Matthews Opera House & Arts Center. Within an hour and a half, you can reach major landmarks like Devils Tower and Mount Rushmore.

Activities

Be sure to take the scenic route

Beautiful scenery abounds everywhere you look in the Black Hills. A centrally located Spearfish vacation rental puts you right near Spearfish Canyon, the area's best place for outdoor activities. Whether you prefer fishing or an easy stroll, or an invigorating hike or nature walk, you can do it here. The surrounding area is also chock full of bike paths and scenic drives -- just be sure to bring your camera. Closer to home, take a walking tour of historic Main Street, try your luck at the casino, or kick back at one of the countless local festivals.

Weather

Where Old Man Winter is right at home

The climate of Spearfish varies widely throughout the year. Spearfish vacation rentals are in highest demand during the warm summer months of June to September, when high temperatures typically hover pleasantly in the 70s and 80s. Bundle up if you're coming in the winter, because it's not uncommon to see below-freezing temperatures anytime from November to March. Add that to five times the national average snowfall, and you'll definitely want some sturdy boots. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall can be unpredictable, but generally not too cold and not too hot, so get out and enjoy the fresh air.

Natural features

Exploring the not-so-black hills

Spearfish sits in a wonderland of green that stretches from the famous Black Hills to the vast plains of central South Dakota. Scenic Spearfish Canyon is cut by the fast-moving Spearfish Creek, which uniquely freezes from the bottom up in winter. Hiking from the canyon you'll find Bridal Veil Falls, whose waters tumble 60 feet from their apex. Just to the south, Black Hills National Forest is home to plenty of hiking trails that will get you up close and personal with some friendly wildlife.
