South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Venture out of the city with trips to Keystone (Breezy Point Picnic Area & Mount Rushmore National Memorial), Badlands National Park (Loop Road & Badlands Wall) and Custer (Sylvan Lake, Iron Mountain Road, & more). Next up on the itinerary: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Reptile Gardens, identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, examine the collection at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Mount Moriah Cemetery.
