Rapid City ©
South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Adams House and Chapel in the Hills. Family-friendly places like Wades Gold Mill and Old MacDonald's Farm will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Rapid City: Fossil Exhibit Trail (in Badlands National Park), Hill City (The Museum @ Black Hills Institute & Things That Rock) and Hot Springs (Angostura Recreation Area & Evans Plunge Mineral Springs). The adventure continues: do a tasting at Naked Winery South Dakota, admire all the interesting features of Broken Boot Gold Mine, get advice or help at Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center, and examine the collection at National Presidential Wax Museum.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Rapid City trip maker .

Expect a daytime high around 89°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
