Overview
More
In 2015, over one million bikers descend on the small town of Sturgis, South Dakota for the 75th anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally – one of the largest events for motorcycle enthusiasts in the USA. For one week each August, this town becomes home to hundreds of thousands of bikers as they enjoy motocross events, drag races and scenic rides through the nearby Black Hills, or to Dakota landmarks like the Badlands or Mount Rushmore. Be warned: accommodation prices predictably skyrocket at this time of year (camping is popular) and the crowd can get a bit rowdy. But isn't that part of the fun?

While travelling the highway, I saw the Sturgis offramp. I have had so many friends travel here for the motorcycle rally so thought I would take a quick look. Of course, there was no rally taking place so it was quite quiet and peaceful. Drove...More

The Rally and surrounding area is everything you want it to be. If your there for the riding or there for the party you won't be disappointed. Just be aware of the "Sturgis Discount", get your wallet out!

Lots of fun! Went to my first Sturgis Bike Rally last weekend for the concert with Chevelle- great venue, great prices on food/drinks, great sound, great fun in between bands and activities were surprising!

Sturgis is always good for a good time, especially during the rally. The entire region becomes one big show. Concerts, bar scene, food trucks, vendors galore. Pretty much everything pertains to Harleys and Indian motorcycles, but it is all great. One big souped up extended...More

We were in Sturgis for business, and we had a rental car. So this review is by someone who doesn't own a bike, but likes motorcycles. We don't drink either, so keep that in mind. We found parking on a side street near Main. We...More
