Gateway to the Black Hills

South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You'll explore and learn at South Dakota Air and Space Museum and Museum of Geology. Kids will enjoy Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Chapel in the Hills. Venture out of the city with trips to Wall Drug (in Wall), Custer (Custer State Park & Wildlife Loop Road) and Deadwood (Mount Moriah Cemetery & Historic Old Town). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, visit Downtown Rapid City, get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens, and get a taste of the local shopping with Prairie Edge Trading Co. & Galleries.
