Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Mammoth Site of Hot Springs and Storybook Island. Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and Suzie Cappa Art Center will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Rapid City: Wall Drug (in Wall), Breezy Point Picnic Area (in Keystone) and Badlands National Park (Big Badlands Overlook & Loop Road). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Mount Moriah Cemetery, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Badlands National Park, explore the striking landscape at Needles Eye Tunnel, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills.

For where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Rapid City travel route tool .

In July in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 62°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
