South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Step off the beaten path and head to Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf and Days of '76 Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Sylvan Lake and Bridal Veil Falls. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Custer State Park (in Custer), Native American Educational and Cultural Center (in Crazy Horse) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame and learn more about the world around you at The Museum @ Black Hills Institute.
