Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Popular historic sites such as Mount Moriah Cemetery and Historic Old Town are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Loop Road (in Badlands National Park), Minuteman Missile National Historic Site (in Philip) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). Pack the 7th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Reptile Gardens, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chapel in the Hills, take a memorable drive along Iron Mountain Road, and wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City.

To see maps, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Rapid City trip itinerary builder site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 62°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
