Mitchell Corn Palace
In South Dakota, along Interstate 90, is a town named Mitchell. Its claim to fame is the Corn Palace. You may learn more about it here and visit their live webcam here.
When we're driving through South Dakota, we just want to get where we're going so we've never driven into Mitchell to see the Corn Palace. (Okay, I always wanted to but Bob didn't.) Since Bob wasn't with us on this trip, we decided to stop.
It's a building. It has corn murals on the outside and inside. It's a mini-sports arena inside, with the court doubling as a big tourist gift shop.
I think it would be more fun to see it after the harvest when the outside murals are new and fresh.
It's one of those places that you can say: Oh, yes, I've been there...ONCE -- and keep it at that, ONCE. lol
