Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Let the collections at South Dakota Air and Space Museum and Adams Museum capture your imagination. Step out of the city life by going to Badlands National Park and Notch Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Badlands National Park (White River Valley Overlook, Door Trail, & more), Delta-09 Missile Silo (in Wall) and Deadwood (Adams House, Days of '76 Museum, & more). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at The Journey Museum and Learning Center, contemplate the long history of Prairie Homestead, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills, and get engrossed in the history at D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, use the Rapid City trip planner .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
