Rapid City — 4 nights

South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Devils Tower National Monument (in Devils Tower), Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and 1880 Train/Black Hills Central Railroad (in Hill City). There's much more to do: immerse yourself in nature at Custer State Park, brush up on your military savvy at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, get the lay of the land with City of Presidents Walking Tour, and appreciate the history behind Crazy Horse Memorial.
