Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Venture out of the city with trips to Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse), Custer (Sylvan Lake, Needles Eye Tunnel, & more) and Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall, Loop Road, & more). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Mount Rushmore National Memorial, make a trip to Dinosaur Park, learn about winemaking at Prairie Berry Winery, and shop like a local with Suzie Cappa Art Center.

To find photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Rapid City journey planner.

Expect a daytime high around 48°F in November, and nighttime lows around 28°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
