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 Bear Country USA and Wind Cave National Park. Mammoth Site of Hot Springs and Adams House will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Keystone (Mount Rushmore National Memorial & Black Hills Helicopters), Wildlife Loop Road (in Custer) and Deadwood (Historic Old Town, Mount Moriah Cemetery, &more). There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Chapel in the Hills, view the masterpieces at Prairie Edge Trading Co. & Galleries, take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, and examine the collection at South Dakota Air and Space Museum.
