South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Get out of town with these interesting Rapid City side-trips: Custer (Iron Mountain Road, Needles Eye Tunnel, &more), Devils Tower (Tower Trail & Devils Tower National Monument) and Keystone (Mount Rushmore National Memorial & Presidential Trail). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, take a memorable drive along Loop Road, buy something for everyone on your list at Wall Drug, and appreciate the history behind Crazy Horse Memorial.

For maps, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Rapid City trip planner.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 65°F, and evening lows to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
