Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You'll explore and learn at Wades Gold Mill and The Museum @ Black Hills Institute. Get a sense of the local culture at Founding Fathers Black Hills and Prairie Homestead. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Custer (Legion Lake & Horseback Riding Tours), Deadwood (Days of '76 Museum & Tatanka: Story of the Bison) and Badlands National Park (Door Trail & Notch Trail). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Presidential Wax Museum, learn about all things military at Delta-09 Missile Silo, don't miss a visit to Art Alley, and take an in-depth tour of Wounded Knee: The Museum.

For more things to do, reviews, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Rapid City trip itinerary planning app .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
