Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse), Custer (Sylvan Lake, Needles Eye Tunnel, & more) and Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Loop Road). There's lots more to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, learn more about the world around you at Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, and take a memorable drive along Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway.

For ratings, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, use the Rapid City online travel planner .

Expect a daytime high around 48°F in November, and nighttime lows around 28°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
