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: Crazy Horse Memorial (in Crazy Horse), Devils Tower (Tower Trail & Devils Tower National Monument) and Keystone (Mount Rushmore National Memorial & Breezy Point Picnic Area). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, cruise along Loop Road, learn about all things military at South Dakota Air and Space Museum, and explore the striking landscape at Badlands Wall.

To find more things to do, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Rapid City online vacation planner .

Expect a daytime high around 75°F in September, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
