South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Venture out of the city with trips to Badlands National Park (Yellow Mounds Overlook, Loop Road, & more), Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and Custer (Iron Mountain Road, Custer State Park, & more). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, find something for the whole family at Storybook Island, take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, and appreciate the history behind Crazy Horse Memorial.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Rapid City online trip itinerary planner .

In September, daytime highs in Rapid City are 28°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
