South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Kids will enjoy Reptile Gardens and Dinosaur Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Rapid City: Scott Jacobs Studio (in Deadwood), Custer (Iron Mountain Road, Needles Eye Tunnel, & more) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). Pack the 2nd (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. And it doesn't end there: get in on the family fun at Storybook Island, take a stroll through Downtown Rapid City, cruise along Loop Road, and learn about winemaking at Firehouse Wine Cellars.

To find more things to do, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Rapid City trip app .

Expect a daytime high around 78°F in June, and nighttime lows around 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
