Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Custer (Sylvan Lake, Iron Mountain Road, & more), Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Badlands Wall) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Reptile Gardens, don't miss a visit to Dinosaur Park, admire the landmark architecture of Chapel in the Hills, and get in on the family fun at Storybook Island.

For maps, ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Rapid City trip itinerary tool .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
