Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get a sense of the local culture at Pawnseum and The Museum @ Black Hills Institute. Kids will appreciate attractions like Wades Gold Mill and Evans Plunge Mineral Springs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Custer County Candy Company (in Custer), Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame (in Sturgis) and Deadwood (Days of '76 Museum, Broken Boot Gold Mine, & more). And it doesn't end there: engage your brain at Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center, see the interesting displays at Museum of Geology, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills, and identify plant and animal life at Angostura Recreation Area.
