Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Chapel in the Hills. Venture out of the city with trips to Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse), Custer (Sylvan Lake & Needles Eye Tunnel) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, look for gifts at Alex Johnson Mercantile, view the masterpieces at Suzie Cappa Art Center, and find something for the whole family at Storybook Island.

For reviews, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Rapid City vacation tool.

In July, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 62°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
