So you’re coming from the east

Spread the love

East of Aberdeen, South Dakota, lies lakes, hills, and history.

U.S. Highway 12, the main East – West road through Aberdeen, was once part of The Yellowstone Trail – the first Transcontinental Highway in the United States. It still runs from Plymouth, Massachusetts, to Seattle, Washington.

As you’re planning a trip to Aberdeen, make a stop to stretch your legs and say hello to some of our neighbors.

For some fresh air and greenery:

A day pass to state parks is $8 per vehicle or $36 for an annual pass that’s good from Memorial Day weekend to that same time next year.

Any state or local park you pick is a great way to spend an afternoon or short break on your way to Aberdeen.
