South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Fri): explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, and then explore the activities along Sylvan Lake. On the 19th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Country USA, and then admire the landmark architecture of Chapel in the Hills.
