      Certainly one of the most famous roadside stops out there, the Corn Palace is a great place to take a short break from the road while traveling across the prairie. Located a few miles off I-90 in Mitchell, South Dakota, The Corn Palace is a big building that's covered in corn! Each year, artist design murals that are created using nothing but locally grown corn. Inside the building is a small museum showing the site's history dating back to 1892 and pictures of the murals from previous years, a basketball arena, and a gift shop.
