South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Devils Tower (Devils Tower National Monument & Tower Trail), Wall Drug (in Wall) and Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Badlands Wall). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, visit Downtown Rapid City, and learn about all things military at South Dakota Air and Space Museum.

To find more things to do, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Rapid City tour itinerary planner.

In July, daytime highs in Rapid City are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 62°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
