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: Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Custer State Park, & more), Badlands National Park (Panorama Point Overlook, Loop Road, & more) and Keystone (Presidential Trail, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, & more). Spend the 5th (Wed) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. Pack the 11th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens, pause for some photo ops at Crazy Horse Memorial, admire all the interesting features of Needles Highway, and identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, use the Rapid City route planner.

In May in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 65°F during the day and 45°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
