Gateway to the Black Hills

South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Bear Country USA and Downtown Rapid City. Venture out of the city with trips to Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse), Devils Tower (Tower Trail & Devils Tower National Monument) and Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel & Sylvan Lake). Pack the 4th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, see the interesting displays at Museum of Geology, get engrossed in the history at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, and get in on the family fun at Storybook Island.
