South Dakota's second-largest city, Rapid City has for many years served as a gateway to the West.
Explore Rapid City's surroundings by going to Keystone (Presidential Trail & Mount Rushmore National Memorial), Badlands National Park (Badlands Wall & Loop Road) and Custer (Needles Eye Tunnel, Sylvan Lake, & more). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 29th (Sat) at WaTiki Indoor Waterpark Resort. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Country USA, appreciate the history behind Crazy Horse Memorial, wander the streets of Downtown Rapid City, and enjoy some diversion at Cosmos Mystery Area.

Plan trip to Rapid City with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

Expect a daytime high around 35°F in December, and nighttime lows around 16°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
