South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Museum-lovers will get to explore South Dakota Air and Space Museum and Minuteman Missile National Historic Site. Your inner history buff will appreciate Mount Moriah Cemetery and Chapel in the Hills. Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Deadwood (Adams Museum & Historic Old Town), Mount Rushmore National Memorial (in Keystone) and Custer (Grace Coolidge Creek, Wildlife Loop Road, &more). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Bear Country USA, explore the striking landscape at Devils Tower National Monument, learn more about the world around you at Mammoth Site of Hot Springs, and steep yourself in history at Vore Buffalo Jump.

To find where to stay, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Rapid City itinerary planner.

In June, plan for daily highs up to 78°F, and evening lows to 57°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
