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 Chapel in the Hills. Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Adams House (in Deadwood), Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Loop Road). The adventure continues: wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, stroll through Reptile Gardens, take a memorable drive along Wildlife Loop Road, and contemplate the waterfront views at Sylvan Lake.
