Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore hidden gems such as D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery and Harney Peak. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Horseback Riding Tours (in Custer) and The Museum @ Black Hills Institute (in Hill City). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Museum of Geology, pause for some serene contemplation at Chapel in the Hills, and get your game on at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf.

To find reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Rapid City trip planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 67°F, and evening lows to 42°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
