Rapid City ©
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 Custer (Sylvan Lake, Needles Eye Tunnel, & more), Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall, Loop Road, & more) and Keystone (Presidential Trail, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, & more). Spend the 20th (Fri) exploring nature at Badlands National Park. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens, explore and take pictures at Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, and pause for some photo ops at Crazy Horse Memorial.

Plan a Rapid City trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

In December, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 1°C, while at night they dip to -10°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
