South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Take a break from the city and head to Panorama Point Overlook and Yellow Mounds Overlook. Termesphere Gallery and Black Hills Mining Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Sturgis (Black Hill National Cemetery & Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame), Center of the Nation Monument (in Belle Fourche) and Vore Buffalo Jump (in Beulah). Next up on the itinerary: learn more about the world around you at The Museum @ Black Hills Institute, see the interesting displays at America's Founding Fathers Exhibit, get engrossed in the history at Pawnseum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Chapel in the Hills.

To find where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Rapid City trip itinerary tool .

Expect a daytime high around 75°F in September, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
