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 (Needles Eye Tunnel, Sylvan Lake, & more), Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall, Loop Road, & more) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). It doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens.

To see more things to do, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Rapid City sightseeing planner.

In August, daytime highs in Rapid City are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 18°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
