Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Custer (Wildlife Loop Road, Iron Mountain Road, & more), Mammoth Site of Hot Springs (in Hot Springs) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, get engrossed in the history at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, find something for the whole family at Storybook Island, and make a trip to Dinosaur Park.

To find more things to do, ratings, maps, and tourist information, go to the Rapid City online trip builder .

Expect a daytime high around 85°F in July, and nighttime lows around 62°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
