Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Berlin Wall Exhibit and Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf. Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Badlands National Park (Roberts Prairie Dog Town, Big Badlands Overlook, & more), Prairie Homestead (in Philip) and Delta-09 Missile Silo (in Wall). There's much more to do: examine the collection at America's Founding Fathers Exhibit, trek along Cathedral Spires Hiking Trail, explore the activities along Legion Lake, and get a taste of life in the country at The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.

For ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Rapid City road trip planning tool .

In July, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
