South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall, Loop Road, & more), Devils Tower (Tower Trail & Devils Tower National Monument) and Keystone (Mount Rushmore National Memorial & Breezy Point Picnic Area). And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, explore the activities along Sylvan Lake, appreciate the history behind Crazy Horse Memorial, and get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens.

For reviews, maps, and other tourist information, read Rapid City trip website .

In September in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 75°F during the day and 53°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
