South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Chapel in the Hills. Visit Mount Moriah Cemetery and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site for their historical value. South Dakota Air and Space Museum and Mammoth Site of Hot Springs will appeal to museum buffs. Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Spearfish (Bridal Veil Falls, D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery, & more), Keystone (Breezy Point Picnic Area, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, & more) and Badlands National Park (Yellow Mounds Overlook, Loop Road, & more). The adventure continues: find something for the whole family at Storybook Island, get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens, have some family-friendly fun at Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, and examine the collection at Museum of Geology.
