Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get some cultural insight at Mount Moriah Cemetery and Downtown Rapid City. You'll explore and learn at Mammoth Site of Hot Springs and Delta-09 Missile Silo. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Minuteman Missile National Historic Site (in Philip), Custer (Wildlife Loop Road & Custer State Park) and Loop Road (in Badlands National Park). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, do a tasting at Firehouse Wine Cellars, and take in the exciting artwork at Suzie Cappa Art Center.

To find reviews, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Rapid City journey site .

In May, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
