Rapid City

— 5 nights

Gateway to the Black Hills

South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Minuteman Missile National Historic Site, Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, City of Presidents Walking Tour, and other attractions you added. Attractions like Loop Road and Custer State Park make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Badlands National Park (Panorama Point Overlook, Badlands Wall, &more), Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel & Iron Mountain Road). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, stroll around Memorial Park, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Wind Cave National Park, and find something for the whole family at Storybook Island.
