Home / The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

It’s the annual pilgrimage of nearly half a million bikers as they descend on the small midwestern town of Sturgis, South Dakota. The Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has been celebrated for over 80 years and is bigger and better than ever. Ten days of food, riding, music, entertainment, scenery and fun is what makes the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally special.

But Sturgis isn’t where the party stops. The Black Hills and surrounding communities are perfect for 500,000 riders to explore everything that western South Dakota and eastern Wyoming have to offer. With the highest concentration of national parks, monuments and memorials in the United States, there’s plenty to see and do during your stay.

Riders who prefer less congestion and cheaper accommodations, yet still want to explore the wide open spaces and beautiful scenery, will find numerous great options in Weston County. Just over an hour away from Sturgis, many purists call Weston County their basecamp for exploring during this exciting time. Staying in Weston County gives you equal access to going north, towards Sturgis, Deadwood and Devils Tower or south towards Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Custer State Park. It’s truly the best of both worlds!

If you’re looking for the perfect place to call your home for the next Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, look no further than Weston County, Wyoming!
