Creating Enjoyable Travel for Everyone–We Mean Everyone

Giving travelers and businesses the tools they need for an exceptional experience in South Dakota

Travel is one of those exhilarating experiences that create memories to last a lifetime. But as memorable as travel can be, it takes a lot of planning–even more so when you can’t take for granted standard amenities like accessing a building safely, or using the facility’s restrooms. Accessible Black Hills is here to not only help travelers have an enjoyable and informed experience in South Dakota, but to equip local businesses with the knowledge to offer the accommodations needed for accessible travel and life.

Meet Our Founder

Kelsey Stine

Kelsey Stine has been a wheelchair user since she was young and has learned to adapt to her surroundings over the years. Growing up in Rapid City, she knows all the accessible entrances, bathrooms, and dining areas throughout the area. Combining her knowledge with the love of travel, Kelsey wanted to create a resource for individuals with disabilities to have a stress-free time when they visited the Hills. This passion was the foundation that Accessible Black Hills has been built on.

Since Our Beginning

In 2021, Accessible Black Hills began as an effort to highlight local businesses in the Rapid City area and rate the accessibility of each location with a supportive and positive approach. Today, we are proudly growing the services we offer to assist local businesses in becoming more accessible, as well as offering more insight to travelers planning on visiting the Black Hills and expanding area.
