South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get outdoors at Loop Road and Needles Eye Tunnel. Mount Moriah Cemetery and Chapel in the Hills will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Adams House (in Deadwood), Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Panorama Point Overlook) and Custer (Iron Mountain Road, Wildlife Loop Road, & more). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Reptile Gardens.

In August, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
