South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Devils Tower National Monument (in Devils Tower), Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Big Badlands Overlook). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, take a memorable drive along Iron Mountain Road, get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens, and browse the different shops at Wall Drug.

To find other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Rapid City trip planner.

In September in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 28°C during the day and 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
