Miller, South Dakota is located an hour north of Interstate 90, along Highway 14, also known as the "Black & Yellow Trail" ( the shortest route from Chicago and Minneapolis to the Black Hills and Yellowstone Park).

At the junction of Highways 14 & 45 North, halfway between the Twin Cities and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Dew Drop Inn is just outside of city limits (which means it's quiet, you save 2% on sales tax, and you can shoot off fireworks on July 4th.)

Miller is a bustling, progressive community with agriculture as its economic base.  At an elevation of 2,647 (whatever thats worth to you) the town boasts around 1500 odd people (some odder than others).

Like anywhere, there's two kinds of people...those who believe there's two kinds of people, and those who don't.

With an average precipitation of 19.94 inches, the area has a moderate climate with an annual mean temperature of 43 degrees (and in the winter it can get a lot meaner).




From Miller, South Dakota, Huron, with the South Dakota State Fair, is just 40 miles east.  The Missouri River is about an hour away, offering the option of going west to Oahe Dam near Pierre and the State Capital, south to Chamberlain, or southwest to Big Bend Dam near Ft Thompson.

Desmet and the Laura Ingles Wilder Pageant are seventy minutes east.  Mitchell, with the Corn Palace and Cabellas, are ninety minutes southeast.

Aberdeen, with Storybook Land, is ninety minutes northeast.  Sioux Falls, the biggest town in South Dakota, is three hours to the southeast.

The Black Hills, with Rapid City and Mount Rushmore, are four and a half hours west.  Needless to say, Miller is an excellent place to base out of while exploring our great area.
