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 Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Loop Road), Keystone (Presidential Trail & Mount Rushmore National Memorial) and Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Sylvan Lake, & more). Pack the 25th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Rushmore Tramway Adventures. There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Reptile Gardens, admire the striking features of Chapel in the Hills, pause for some photo ops at Crazy Horse Memorial, and identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA.

To find traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Rapid City travel route website .

In June, daily temperatures in Rapid City can reach 78°F, while at night they dip to 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
