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 Deadwood (Historic Old Town, Deadwood Model Train, &more), Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse) and Custer (Black Hills National Forest, Needles Eye Tunnel, &more). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Country USA, take a memorable drive along Spearfish Canyon Scenic Byway, trek along Presidential Trail, and admire all the interesting features of Loop Road.
