South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Chapel in the Hills has been added to your itinerary. Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Devils Tower National Monument (in Devils Tower), Badlands National Park (Yellow Mounds Overlook, Loop Road, & more) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Reptile Gardens, learn about all things military at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, take in the dramatic natural features at Needles Eye Tunnel, and explore the activities along Sylvan Lake.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Rapid City tour itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
