South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You've added Storybook Island, 1880 Train/Black Hills Central Railroad, Cosmos Mystery Area, and other attractions to your itinerary. Kids will appreciate attractions like Reptile Gardens and Mammoth Site of Hot Springs. Venture out of the city with trips to Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and Wall Drug (in Wall). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City.

For reviews, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Rapid City online day trip planner .

In August in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 60°F at night. On the 19th (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
