South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Kick off your visit on the 25th (Fri): admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens, explore the activities along Sylvan Lake, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: stroll the grounds of Mount Moriah Cemetery, then identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, and then take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Rapid City day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in May, and nighttime lows around 42°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
