South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
On the 13th (Sun), have some family-friendly fun at Cosmos Mystery Area, then explore the striking landscape at Needles Eye Tunnel, then contemplate the waterfront views at Sylvan Lake, and finally take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City. Keep things going the next day: take in the exciting artwork at Suzie Cappa Art Center, identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, then explore the striking landscape of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and finally cruise along Iron Mountain Road.
