Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
You'll explore and learn at South Dakota Air and Space Museum and Mammoth Site of Hot Springs. Get a sense of the local culture at Mount Moriah Cemetery and Prairie Edge Trading Co. & Galleries. Change things up with these side-trips from Rapid City: Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Black Hills National Forest, & more), Badlands National Park (Yellow Mounds Overlook & Loop Road) and Wall Drug (in Wall). And it doesn't end there: get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens, don't miss a visit to Art Alley, take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, and take some stellar pictures from Breezy Point Picnic Area.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Rapid City trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

In July in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 62°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
