Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse), Custer (Wildlife Loop Road, Custer State Park, & more) and Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Loop Road). There's much more to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, stop by Christmas Village Store, and get in on the family fun at Storybook Island.

For other places to visit, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Rapid City attractions planning tool .

In September, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 75°F, while at night they dip to 53°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
