South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You've now added Chapel in the Hills to your itinerary. Kick off your visit on the 15th (Thu): admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills, then do a tasting at Firehouse Wine Cellars, and finally explore the activities along Sylvan Lake. Keep things going the next day: discover the riches below the earth's surface at Big Thunder Gold Mine, take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, and then cruise along Iron Mountain Road.

To see maps, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Rapid City trip maker site .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 60°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
