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: Custer (Iron Mountain Road, Wildlife Loop Road, & more), Devils Tower National Monument (in Devils Tower) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens, brush up on your military savvy at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, take in the dramatic natural features at Badlands Wall, and admire the striking features of Chapel in the Hills.
