South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Popular historic sites such as Mount Moriah Cemetery and Chapel in the Hills are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Rapid City: Custer (Sylvan Lake & Custer State Park), Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Yellow Mounds Overlook) and Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Country USA, stop by Wall Drug, and wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City.

To see where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, use the Rapid City online route planner .

In August, daytime highs in Rapid City are 83°F, while nighttime lows are 60°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
