South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like South Dakota Air and Space Museum and Mammoth Site of Hot Springs. Appreciate the collections at Prairie Edge Trading Co. & Galleries and Suzie Cappa Art Center. Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone), Custer (Sylvan Lake, Black Hills National Forest, & more) and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site (in Philip). There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Reptile Gardens, wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, view the masterpieces at Art Alley, and take a memorable drive along Loop Road.

To see maps, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Rapid City trip itinerary maker .

In July, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 62°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
