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: Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Badlands Wall), Custer (Sylvan Lake, Needles Eye Tunnel, & more) and Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone). Pack the 29th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. Next up on the itinerary: get to know the resident critters at Reptile Gardens, don't miss a visit to Dinosaur Park, find something for the whole family at Storybook Island, and view the masterpieces at Suzie Cappa Art Center.
