South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Bring the kids along to Reptile Gardens and Storybook Island. Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Loop Road (in Badlands National Park), Bicycle Sculpture (in Pringle) and Mammoth Site of Hot Springs (in Hot Springs). Pack the 9th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, immerse yourself in nature at Custer State Park, stop by Alex Johnson Mercantile, and explore the striking landscape at Needles Eye Tunnel.
