South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like America's Founding Fathers Exhibit and Museum of Geology. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf and Harney Peak. Change things up with a short trip to Needles Eye Tunnel in Custer (about 1 hour away). Pack the 6th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Country USA, view the masterpieces at Suzie Cappa Art Center, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Reptile Gardens.

Plan a trip to Rapid City easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

In July, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 62°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
