Rapid City

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 America's Founding Fathers Exhibit. Discover out-of-the-way places like Chapel in the Hills and Black Hills Helicopters. Get in touch with nature at Mount Rushmore National Memorial and Off-Road Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Bridal Veil Falls (in Spearfish), Deadwood (Deadwood Trailhead George S. Mickelson Trail, Adams House, &more) and Spearfish Falls (in Savoy). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Black Elk Peak, take an in-depth tour of Black Hills Mining Museum, identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, and learn about winemaking at Prairie Berry Winery.
