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: Custer (Wildlife Loop Road, Iron Mountain Road, & more), Mount Moriah Cemetery (in Deadwood) and Keystone (Breezy Point Picnic Area, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, & more). There's still lots to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Reptile Gardens, explore the striking landscape of Badlands National Park, pause for some photo ops at Crazy Horse Memorial, and take in the dramatic natural features at Badlands Wall.

To find ratings, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Rapid City trip tool .

In August in Rapid City, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 60°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
