Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Chapel in the Hills has been added to your itinerary. Shop till you drop at The Farmer's Daughter and Suzie Cappa Art Center. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Roberts Prairie Dog Town and Museum of Geology. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Bridal Veil Falls (in Spearfish), Yellow Mounds Overlook (in Badlands National Park) and Roughlock Falls State Nature Area (in Lead). And it doesn't end there: take in breathtaking views at Canyon Lake Park, steep yourself in history at Vore Buffalo Jump, and look for gifts at Professor Samuel's Portrait Emporium.

In June, daytime highs in Rapid City are 78°F, while nighttime lows are 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
